Microsoft announced that it released Office 2000 to manufacturing on Monday, with shipments to volume license customers expected to follow in April and to retail customers in June.
The new suite will come in five versions, including Office 2000 Premium, which is priced at $399.
Bob Muglia, senior vice president of Microsoft?s business productivity group, said: "With this new release, Office has evolved from a standalone tool for use at individual desktops to a critical asset that empowers users to create and share information across enterprises."
He will take charge of Microsoft?s newly formed Business Productivity Group in a restructuring announced on Monday.
