I got the same mail too. I used the Technical Preview in my work laptop everyday so I got to report couple of bugs to MS.

Nothing beneficial for most businesses

Nothing beneficial for most businesses no reason to upgrade/purchase
Like Vista all bling no function.

If they wanted to improve Office they SHOULD have -

1. Made outlook open multiple e-mail accounts as full exchange -not an additional mailbox with some functionality or pop/imap with very limited functionality but two seperate exchange profiles simultaneously from multiple exchange servers.

2. Full OLE support for pictures in access umm wasnt that functional with Office XP why take that out? Why should someone have to code to add pictures to a personal database? Might was well use oracle or a real database if you are going to have to use code. Adding Office XP photo editor is the work around but why not just add photo editor back into office if that is the solution?

3. Offer the old menu bar for people (most of my clients) who dont want to learn the new menu bar. You can finally modify the ribbon to some extent in 2010 however my clients just want their old ribbon bar. Frankly I have no issue with the new menu bar but Im one person and most of my clients dont like it so prefer to stick with office 2003. MS could make money selling the new version if they just offered the old menu as a choice with the new ribbon.
