Microsoft Office 2010 now on public beta

Microsoft’s next version of office, 2010 is available for everyone to download and test from today as part of it public beta test programme. As someone who first tried 2010 as part of the restricted Technical Preview since July I can vouch that its not just useable but has many great features that I now wouldn’t want to be without.

For me its finishes the changes that began in the 2007 version and this time they have spent time on the most used application in the suite, namely Outlook.

If you can download the beta at www.microsoft.com/2010  – they site also tells you what the new version does new.

One other thought, applications that are normally separate like Visio and Project are also available to try. Could be a good way of seeing if you really would use them without having to shell lots of money out first.
