Microsoft Office 2010 Beta Downloads Live

18 Nov/09

Microsoft Office 2010 Beta downloads have been active for a few days for MSDN and Technet subscribers. Everyone else did not have a choice but to wait until Microsoft would enable public downloads of their latest Office software suite. Downloads have finally been activated for the public and are now available on the official Microsoft Office 2010 Beta website. The strange thing here is that the download link that was reported a few days ago is still not working. Downloads can on the other hand be initiated on the following Microsoft Office 2010 website.
