From Office Web to Office 14 now, and I found Mary-Joâ€™s post useful as a quick update on progress. Office 14 is the next version of Office (the desktop based one), and in terms of version numbers I think they skipped 13 due to it being an unlucky number (or some such).
The post is a good summary, but also includes a few new items, such as the rumour that SharePoint 14 will include offline access (provided by the Groove technology). Thereâ€™s also other speculation such as SharePoint supporting SQL tables as SharePoint lists and SharePoint as an archive for Exchange.
And perhaps even a 2009 timeframe (although unlikely).
