    Microsoft Office 2007 Beta!

    Register Page

    Microsoft Office 2007 is available for free for non-MSDN subscribers. All you need is a .NET account. This is a partially limited beta (obviously), but it had most of the features I would use, so it doesn't really matter.

    Look out for the soon-to-happen Vista public beta, too

    There is also available a web page designer free download with registration. Its called Microsoft Expression Web Designer

    How it differs from Sharepoint 2007 I have not explored it yet. DLed and installed that was as far as I got. Waiting for this interminable Vista DL to happen. (guess thats the problem with getting it next day MSs servers are clogged )

    Yep got it last night, don't really care for the interface but that is because I still use Office 2000 and Oo on linux.

    I have downloaded it but not installed it yet. The big reason to switch to 2007 IMO is because it is all .xml based, or so they say.

    Thanks for the link. D/Ling as we speak, I'm a fan of both Office and OO. Like them both, and I'm ready to try this one out.

    ^I agree.

    The layout is very simple. It shows you a portion of what you would use, but in that portion, there's everything you would need. For example:
    The "Home" tab has most of your formatting tools, heading options, and paragraph styles.
    The "Insert" tab has buttons to insert a picture, clipart, hyperlink, charts, etc.
    And so on and so forth.


    The general UI design is very clean, and I like the backdrop to your paper. The "File" menu is now a button with all sorts of options for printing and saving and whatnot.
