Microsoft’s MacBU (Macintosh Business Unit) recently announced that Office for Mac 2011 reached a very important milestone in its development process – Office for Mac 2011 has just reached the RTM (Release to Manufacturing) milestone.

“This means we’ve signed off on final testing and the product is officially getting sent on its way to production and to customers. We’ll be cranking the Microsoft ship siren and celebrating in all of our team locations (Redmond, Microsoft Silicon Valley, Beijing, Dublin and Tokyo), raising a glass to Office 2011!” announced Product Unit Manager on the MacBU team, Geoff Price.
