Microsoft published a public beta version of their new Office 2007 suite 
for Windows.

One interesting point is that Office 2007 includes a new set of 
high-quality OpenType fonts from the Microsoft ClearType collection 
(http://www.microsoft.com/resources/design/ClearType.html ):  Calibri, 
Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia, Corbel, as well as Segoe UI, 
Microsoft's new user interface font. All the fonts include Latin, 
Cyrillic and Greek characters with advanced typographic OpenType 
features, some include characters from additional scripts.

One highlight of Office 2007 is the new math typesetting engine in Word. 
It consists of the Cambria font that has a large mathematical character 
set, and a fully new "equation editor" which is seamlessly integrated 
into new Office applications and allows mathematical input using various 
text encoding schemes, including a syntax very similar to TeX.

The current beta version of Office 2007 will run until February 2007 and 
is available free of charge to anyone interested:

(The download is rather large though, at least 450 MB).
