It symbolizes and introduces customers to an exciting new set of experiences uniquely enabled in Office XP. These experiences enable customers to unlock their creativity and productivity through the power of Microsoft software and the Internet. Office XP also represents an important step in delivering on the Microsoft .NET vision of empowering customers to move beyond disconnected applications, services, and devices to complete computing experiences, thus redefining the relationship between people, software, and the Internet.
