Office 2010 Ready To Test

If Office 2007 is just too old, you can now take Office 2010 out for a spin. At least the beta, that is.

One of the coolest features, potentially, is the inclusion of scaled-down, Web-only versions of key Office apps Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This is the area I'm really interested in, so if you've already downloaded and tried the software, let me know what you think at [email protected]

SharePoint 2010 is likewise now in beta, and is now 64-bit only. A lot of the SharePoint tweaks have to do with manageability, such as 500 new PowerShell commands and new ways to deploy the software.
