Office 2010 Beta As Massive As Windows 7s, 7.5 Million Downloads

The Beta program for Office 2010 was just as massive as the testing efforts around Windows 7, according to statistics provided by Microsoft. And if the size of the Beta is any indication of the future commercial success of the software, the latest iteration of the Office System is bound to follow in the tracks of Windows 7. Released to Manufacturing on April 15th, 2010, Office 2010 had been test-driven by no less than 7.5 million Beta testers since it was launched at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles in November 2009, Takeshi Numoto, corporate vice president, Microsoft Office, noted.

RTM is the final engineering milestone of a product release and our engineering team has poured their heart and soul into reaching this milestone. It is also an appropriate time to re-emphasize our sincere gratitude to the more than 5,000 organizations and partners who have worked with us on rapid deployment and testing of the products. Since the start of our public beta in November 2009, weve had more than 7.5 million people download the beta version thats more than 3 times the number of 2007 beta downloads! The feedback that weve received from all these programs has shaped the set of products were excited about, and that Im sure will delight our customers, Numoto revealed.

Way to go Microsoft. Seems they are getting the idea right; put up your product for testing by the public, and WOW they get some great testing results. And, this leads to a enriched application along with a new base of users. Not just good business, but also smart marketing.
