    I say we start a little Thread with all the people that visit XP-erience ans are part of the Office 11 Beta Test Program.
    Are you excited?
    Have you gotten it yet?
    What do you think so far?
    Any bugs?
    I know that there is a news group and all but screw M$, news groups are too large and full of annoyences. We'll get better suggestions, problems, fun stuff here anyways. :cool:

    I just got an E-mail from an STSBETA@microsoft.com inviting me to join http://[myrealname].stsbeta.iponet.net
    i went there and had to chang a password and such, but it doesn't say what its for, it looks like a community administration page. here is the e-mail:
