I am downloading the beta that is now available. Still thinking about grabbing Visio 2010 while I am at it, but I'll probably wait.

I am intrigued by some of the features being touted for 2010 :D

Fyi, the downloads are for Professional Beta, x86 or x64.

just installed x64 bit today and am starting to play with it too..

on a side note, kind of silly that it requires you uninstall EVERY 32-bit office product before it lets you install the x64 bit version.


edit: oh.. just downloaded the visio 2010 also and will be installing that tomorrow.. maybe tonight if I feel motivated enough.

I installed the x64 version from the beta public site. Fell in love with the TP so I had to get this one. Love it, fast, clean.

They moved all the options around. Figuring out where they put them all is going to take some paying attention.

I don't like Backstage. It's literally like opening a new window just to see the menu option. I prefer Office 2007 layout where it's just a drop down menu with the document visible in the background.

btw, the beta is open to all - at least the 32-bit version for home and business users.

For those who do not have MSDN or a Technet subscription and want to try Office 2010 there is also a free public download of the beta.

At the risk of sounding like an advertisement, I like the features, improvements and robustness of Office 2007 and 2010, but I use Addintools' Classic Menu for Office 2007 since I'm an old dog and am resistant to learning new tricks. They have a beta (albeit, old...from June) for Office 2010, as well. You can still use the ribbon just as well, and switch back and forth on the fly with little effort. When I was more heavily using Excel, I was actually switching back and forth depending on which options I was looking for. Some were easier to find on the ribbon, other more common were of course easy for me to remember where they were in the old menu system.

FYI if you follow any other links to their homepage and beyond you might reach a similar download page as the one I provided, but the download links (at least for Classic Menu for Office 2010) didn't work.

They also have separate Classic Menu programs for many individual Office programs, in case you are only concerned with, for example, Word. The price of an individual appears to be half of what the whole Classic Menu for Office package would cost.

You can customize pretty much everything. There is barely any learning curve.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
