    I don't think i'll use a beta version for for my doc's. I need them to be bug free. Maybe shortly after it exits beta.

    I'm curious to know if Microsoft will offer a similar student deal to the amazing Office 2007 Ultimate one!

    I feel like my comments are being erased... or may that be it was another topic... can't seem to remember.

    I don't like microsoft betas, they have way too many bugs and security holes, maybe once the RC comes up.

    Windows 7 beta was awesome and virtually bug free.

    Does this interfere with Office 2007 in any way? Can I run both of them at the same time?

    Note: Beta is not exactly "Trial"
    Beta is meant for testers to test the Office version to see if it works properly
