January 11th was zero hour for Microsoft as the injunction against Word and Office 2007 went into effect. The software giant out of Redmond had indicated that it was prepared for the injunction and would have it products fixed and ready to roll on the injunction date. Despite its good intentions, Microsoft failed to deliver this update and has pulled most of its Office 2007 and Word 2007 products from the shelves of its online store. Microsoft informs customers that these affected Office and Word 2007 versions are being updated and will be returning soon. The software giant advises customers to purchase Office Ultimate for $679 or try out the beta version of Office 2010.

Hurry on over to Amazon, Newegg and other retailers who, for the time being, are still selling the affected products.
