Office System 2003 to exclude InfoPath and OneNote

Microsoft will disclose on Wednesday, April 2 that retail and OEM (installed on new computers) versions of Office System 2003 will include neither InfoPath, a program that helps generate form-like documents, or OneNote, a note-taking application. OneNote will only be sold separately, while InfoPath will only be included in a version for volume license customers.

The company is set to unveil half a dozen different editions of its market-leading Office productivity suite, four of which will be available for retail sale. These include: Office 2003 Standard Edition, Office 2003 Student and Teacher Edition, Office 2003 Small Business Edition, and Office Professional 2003, and should all be on retail shelves this summer.

The most full-featured version of the Office 2003 suite is Office Professional 2003 Enterprise Edition, and is only available to volume licensees such as businesses and academic institutions. This is the only edition that will include InfoPath.
