    MSDN only still though? What's the build on these?

    Edit: TechNet as well. I'm waiting on the CTP.

    Another edit: Yay all the useful stuff is in Enterprise, Business, or Ultimate. But if I buy Ultimate I will look like a ricer who spends their days sticking LED fans to their case.

    Office 2k7 worked for me (and I'm not on MSDN), Vista it says isn't available yet.

    Office version number is (12.0.4017.1006) MSO (12.0.4017.1003). Which unless I'm very much mistaken, is beta 2.

    Just realised the Office one was there too, landed in my Inbox.

    Auth servers are dead / slow or dead slow.

    Office 2007 certainly is a bit weird! Not sure whether I like it or not, would certainly take a lot of getting used to. I'm surprised they've been so radical, I would have thought that one of the strengths of MS Office is a well recognised interface. Still, someone needs to try something new from time to time!

    What is the limitation in Office Beta? Time? Function?

    Probably forced updates and deactivation when the product is released.

    And bugs.

    Vista will be CPP'd before the end of the month... probably. I heard 27th as a rumour somewhere.

    Anyone know the latest fully release version of Office? Is it 2003? Is 2007 really buggy at the moment then?
