    Ok, I thought it was bull too, but it is legit. I'm installing it on my Vista 64 computer as we speak. It is a direct link to Microsoft. I don't use MS Office, or anything too often, but thought it would be nice to have an update Word program for this computer w/o spending over $100 for it.

    Here's the link if anyone wants to try it. I'm not responsible for anything that could happen to your install!

    Wow nice! Thanks for the link and the heads up. I've been running office 03 cause I refused to pay for 2007. I had it threw my tech-net subscription which has now expired so a beta is exactly what I needed.

    I've been using it since the beta was made public - and it's working really well.

    I've been using it on my desktop for quite a while now. Just installed it on my daughters new laptop last night. It works great. I think it expires in october.

    Yea I've been using 2010 for about a year now. It is by far their best Office release. I love the threading they've added to Outlook. It's such a small change but it such a massive improvement.

    i have it downloaded on my netbook, but i have to say i do not use my netbook for word processing very often. I basically downloaded beta 2010 for ease of...well downloading and freeness. Since my netbook doesnt have a cd drive.

    but my main computer still has 2007, ive taken several advanced microsoft office courses during college and i know 2007 like the back of my hand, i didnt want to have to relearn a bunch of layout.

    Outlook 2010 rocks! To me, it's way better than Vista's Microsoft Mail (or whatever it was called). Outlook used to be a memory hog, but this iteration runs really smooth and integrates nicely with other Office and Windows 7 components.
