How quickly will Microsoft deploy Office 12 client?

Wondering whether to deploy office 12 beta to some of your users,  this is Microsoft’s current plan:

  • Dogfood 4,  the version being demonstrated to partners at the beginning of August – 100 people in Microsoft
  • Dogfood 4 plus patch, the version I think will be available at the time of the PDC in September – 2,500 users
  • Beta 1, 7,500 users
  • Beta 2 – Phase 1 – 20,000 users
  • Beta 2 – Phase 2 – 30,000 users
  • Beta 2 – Technology refresh – 50,000 users
  • RTM – 70,000 users
