Office 2010: Technology Preview is released in July - Update
Although Office 2010 is not supposed to be released until 2010, but the Technology Preview of Microsoft's new Office Suite will become available in July already. Furthermore there will be a 32 Bit and a 64 Bit version.
In July 2009 the preview phase of Office 2010 begins. Within the TechEd the participants will get access to the Technology Preview first. Microsoft will invite interested people who registered at Microsoft's Office 2010 Technology Preview website.
Via a blog the developers want to deliver first hand information about the progress of Office 2010. This system has already been used during the development of Windows 7. Office 2010 is said to deliver several improvements compared to its predecessor. As already expected there will be a 32 Bit and a 64 Bit version of Office 2010. Hardware that is able to handle Office 2007 is also supposed to be fast enough for Office 2010. Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista or Windows 7 are required.
