I have been using microsoft office word 2007 (beta) but I am no "techno" and just use it everyday as a secretary would, in fact I am not even a secretary but like using computers. I did not sign up to your event as it would go way over my head. Your blog is very readable :) but I would likke to know when the new software will be made available to the ordinary punter and what will happen after my sell by date has happened.
Don't know if this was the right place to contact but I am sure that many users out there are like me and would be interested in finding out. Cheers and good look with the launch Best wishes Mary
Office 2007 and Windows Vista launch to consumer markets on 30th January, so you shouldn't have long to wait.
When the beta expires you'll no longer be able to use the copy you have unfortunately.
You can get a trial from http://ukireland.trymicrosoftoffice.com/ which will enable you to try out the final version (ie rather than the beta) free of charge.
You need to make sure you unintall the beta before installing the trial.
Please make sure you read and agree to the terms and conditions before using the product :-)
