Today at PDC, we announced the availability of our public Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 betas. The next few months are simply going to be fun. We can finally talk about all the cool new features, and especially from my point of view, the new stuff for developers. It's a whole new world. We're making this beta available in seven languages - English, Spanish, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, French and German.
