Got the email yesterday as well. From what the email says, it looks like they are going to -ship- Office 2007. Ah well, as long as I get it either way.

Can anyone confirm that Office 2007 really going to be shipped or downloaded?

On the other hand...

From the way it sounds, we'll be getting information on Office 2007 in our mail, telling us how to download it? o.O?

Over at the Channel9 forums, Mark Brown said

Yes, that's correct. Download for Office and physical media for Vista.

I was only intersted in Vista. I completed all the requisite webcasts (and a few more, since they were informative). I have yet to get the confirmation email. Did it come from Microsoft, or another email address? Just curious.

I think mine came from a different email, which was Support-Officeseries -at- response.microsoft.com

To get more trial days do this.

1. Hit Winkey+R

2. Write "slmgr.vbs -rearm" without ""

3. Wait about 40 seconds

4. Restart

How many days do you start with, 30,60 or 90? I take it you wait and run this command when the default days are close to running out? One more thing, did they issue a patch for that explorer bug that deleted everything in a directory? TIA :)

when you first install vista you get 30 days trial, when you are down to 1 day, do that command and you'll get 30 more days. You can do it up to 4 times (120 days total).

Has anyone been able to successfully fax in the W-9? I think by the time I can fax it in, it might have arrived via snail mail! Their faxes have to be getting pounded right now!

heck, this is even worth the $0.35 stamp!! But I'd rather have the fax confirmation that it was received.

I think I will be mailing mine, faxing stuff is not very reliable. Especially with my VOIP internet.

That's the public release. RTM has already happened. According to Microsoft our stuff is at the mailing center now, and address labels are being printed, and affixed.

Congrats to everyone. For those of you who missed out on Office Professional 2007 you still could sign up for the Launch tour in your area and get a free copy for attending. I just received the following today, so evidently they haven't run out of these.

Freaked out much too soon. Got my confirmation in email this afternoon. Looking forward to putting this on my desktop system. My laptop lacks the graphics and space so it will continue to be a Win XP Pro machine. My wife's laptop qualified for the Vista Home Premium and she should get that soon. Congrats everyone.

According to MS, if you got Vista thru MSDN or Connect then you weren't eligible for the FREE Vista Business promotion. How'd you manage it?
