Default Office 2010 Beta available on MSDN/Technet

Just an FYI, I am downloading this right now and will install shortly

Free beta download apparently.

http://www.microsoft.com/office/2010/en/default.aspx

I am really liking some of the new feature previews and am considering downloading Visio 2010 as well.

First impressions using Office 2010 64bit.

It's freaking fast!

Office 2007 was\is terrible.

I've switched to Open Office on every system I work on. Its free, it works and I use it so rarely that any slight down sides it has are barely noticeable compared to the migraine inducing issues I've had with Office 2007.

Office 2007 was good CaptN. Please learn to use Office. 2010 is similar but better.

Open Office FtMFW.

Personally i can see little advantage of using Office 2010 over, say, Office 2001.

The only thing Open Office has going for it is it's price. Office 97 had a more refined interface and MUCH better performance.

yap, using Open Office is like taking time machine to early 90s, it even can simulate early 90s machines by how slow open office works.
