More people downloaded Office than Windows

More people downloaded Office 2010 beta than Windows 7 RC.

Quote:
Itís now official, Office 2010 is bigger than Windows 7, at least as far as the sheer number of downloads of the pre-release testing Builds is concerned. On the day of Office 2010ís commercial launch, Microsoft confirmed officially that the latest iteration of the productivity suite was downloaded in excess of nine million times. As of today, June 15th, 2010, customers around the world can purchase Office 2010 via retail outlets or online shops.

Microsoft was little shy about applauding the early success of Office 2010. Launched in Beta stage in November 2009, Office 2010 has generated an immense amount of interest from early adopters. The Redmond company is, in this regard, entitled to hope that the over nine million downloads of Office 2010 Beta will translate into strong sales. By comparison, according to the software giantís statistics, Windows 7 was downloaded over eight million times ahead of RTM.

I just think it comes down to most computer users can't really be bothered installing the OS from the ground up to beta test. We are the minority.

I have used 2010 for a while now, and I love it. I HATE office 2007, so for me it would be worth it (I didn't have to pay, which made it a no brainer)

What are the differences between the 2? In office 2007 I don'tlike the way youhave the options at the top of the screen, I much prefer the drop down menus. Are they menu's the same as 2007 or have they gone back to the old one's?

The lay out is similar to office 2007. Microsoft will never go back to the drop down menus. So if you want to keep drop down menus use an office released before 2007.

When you consider that this is for multiple operating systems (including apple) then I think there is a much larger base for this to target.

Its better than 2007.... It actually kind of makes sense now. I know what you mean about the ribbon vs the drop down menus.... That was what made me use Open Office

Would love someone to explain to me why everyone hates the ribbon. I love it, everything is so much easier for me to find.

And yeah, 2010 is much better than 2007, especially if you have 64-bit Windows.
