Microsoft Office 2010 Beta FREE

MS Office 2010 Home and Business Edition Beta is available for download for free until Oct. 2010.
You will need to create a MS Office Online account to do so.

Microsoft Office Online

I installed it this A.M., and it is a major step up, even from Office'07.
Enjoy!

I have had it on here since 2009! It will require activation once you get the confirmation email from MS! You can add several email accounts into one inbox for those missing Windows Mail or Outlook Express easily.

You might want to look over the beta for Visio as well since those work together. Microsoft Office Online

MS Office 2010 beta is required first however to add Visio to it. To activate open the help link and enter the key they provide for the download.

What I wonder is whether I can run it side by side with my office 2007. Has anybody done that?

Both require activation like you would with Windows. But it doesn't prompt showing so many days left. That was something MS apparently left out. The two images here show the account info and key prompt as well as the confirmation on activation when opening the help tab.

You may that a problem whs since this is a newer version of the same program. Typically one replaces the other.

Not necessarily. in Vista you could run 98-03 together with 2007.

That's good to know! I never had the older versions on having a different ISP using OE or WM and found myself needing a new email client for several accounts! Plus it was a chance to test another beta!
