Confirmed: Office 2010 will come in 32-bit, 64-bit

Last month, a very believable rumor started flying around in regard to Office 2010 shipping in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Check out ZDNet and Within Windows to see how the conclusion was drawn. Everything pointed to Microsoft finally offering a 64-bit flavor of its Office suite, previous versions of which have only shipped in 32-bit or 16-bit flavors. In an e-mail exchange with Ars today, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that Office 2010 will be available in both flavors: "Yes, Office will have two separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Office 2010 will be the first to do this."

Will 64-bit Excel 2010 remove more of the artificial limits to the size of a spreadsheet? At least Excel 2007 removed some.

Bye.

Giant spreadsheets?
i can see the reason for moving to a 64 office... (at least for me)
the million dollar question would be...
are both 64 and 32 going to be included in the same package?
as many users will (i predict) backlash if it isnt...

I predict they will release it before 2010 or I will be pissed off. This is BS.
