    Has anyone (on this forum) been able to get their hands on the technical preview?
    I was wondering what you think of it (if you got it). From the screenshots posted on the net, I don't think I like the idea of Backstage (replacement for the Orb) - I very much prefer using the Orb a) because it's inline with all other menu beaviours (ie. a drop down menu) and b) because it allows the worksheet to remain visible at all times.

    I've used it a little bit but not as much as I will be doing soon. There are some weird changes in Outlook and the message headers that I was caught off guard with a little bit. Other than that, no real complaints so far :)

    Been too busy looking and playing with windows 7 lately (not to mention a new MPLS network, planning a data center move, and putting in new PRI's at all our locations) to install office 2010 previews..

    I haven't got it yet, but I am looking forward to the chance to play around with it.
