    you can't download it. there used to be a link on this website to apply for the beta testing.

    I got my copy of office 11 beta yesterday too.......but for me it hasnt all been the color of roses. I cant get it to install because in any of the 3 CD's is the file OFFICE1.CAB, so after awhile the install says it cant find the file and retracks, and not only that, now everytime i start IE or a popup goes on the installation for frontpage starts up and wont let me use IE unless i cancel it like 3 times........so yea im pissed, but ill live. In case anyone knows how to solve any of my problems let me know, and as for the poll.........I signed up to actually test it :)

    hmm... u know what Jewelzz, it's kinda hard to tell if you could even CONSIDER that to be piracy, since:
    a) the software isn't OFFICIALLY released to the public, and
    b) it doesn't even have an OFFICIAL name yet, since it's still under the code name.

    Makes ya wonder, don't it? :confused:

    a) it isn't released to the public, don't you think there is a reason for that.
    b) Could you mail MS and ask them for a copy of longhorn with the same reasoning... I wanna read the reply.

    If MS allowed anyone to enter the beta it would be available on their site for download and it would not contain product activation. I am sure it will say somewhere within the office 11 documents (which btw, is a fantastic codename) it will say not for distribution.

    Not too often that a beta, publiclly released or not, isn't considered warez if freely distributed and it's not freeware. As EP said, read the documentation that came with your copy of Office11, I'm sure you'll find something in there about not distributing the beta.

    I received it also but one month ago.
    I found it very good, I liked some new featuresin excel and powerpoint and of course Outlook, that it is just great, i my opinion the best email program ever.
    The New XML features i don't use them.
