  • Office 2007 Beta 2 Released

    Microsoft today released to the public the Office 2007 Beta 2 for download. Since I am currently at school I cannot download it so I cannot give you any information on how it runs or how I like the new UI. What I can tell you is that the beta includes EVERY office product and the servers that go along with them. Currently it may take a while to get access to the download and login, it is because of the amount of people currently trying to download and test the beta themselves. This beta will last until next February (Feb 2007), and it is totally free.

        So, this is a no limit beta test?

        btw, I didn't see Frontpage on the list.

          yep, and they stopped making frontpage. Think they replaced it with communicator.

                You know, looking at the list on the Professional Edition, I wonder: when are they going to include Visio in the package?

                  Don't know, but Visio is a great program.

                  I have been playing around with PowerPoint and Word a lot today and they kick serious butt. The new interface is really intuative when you get down to it, and the new features to word like Table of Contents (actually hidden in a menu somewhere in the past version or two), the addition of a citation engine and a bibliography right inside it is very nice indeed. With PowerPoint I like how text now is almost like WordArt, but you can do a lot more like have it reflect and such, and the new templates are excellent. While there are fewer now they have the ability to become super custom by changes colors and the style of it and the background of the template.

                    Would it overwrite my current Windows Office suite that I have, or be separate??

                        I just dowloaded it and tested it out. It DOES NOT overwrite your current office version. The only hiccup I saw was that it imported my account seettings from Outlook Express to Outlook. The interface is awesome. It took a bit to get used to the completely overhauled interface, it is pretty smooth IMO. Otherwise it is running solid, to include the language pack I also installed. The entire beta expires Feb 2007.

                          You can install it separtately, but I have not figured out how to set it up to default to the older version of office if you want to use it. Just remember when you run the setup to say to keep the older office, the only program that will have to be removed is outlook, but the new outlook is nice looking. The only problem I have is that the new UI isn't the same on all the programs, just Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. I hope every other program will get the new UI update soon because the new UI is so much more intuative.

                            Spanish?

                            Does it fix the problem where it will all of a sudden change the language back to english from where u start typing after it has done it? In other words, I'll get a red underline for a word that is spelled correctly, and I'll have to highlight everything, then go back to select language, and select Spanish. It drives me nuts!!

                              No I downloaded the German Beta version. But it does do both languages simultaniously. Is got a bit confused on certain words that are similar in both languages.
                              I did not see anything for Spanish, sry.
