OFFICE 2010 BETA – Did you download – Are you using it?

Get ready – the time had to come and it is around the corner.

The BETA version of Office 2010 is shutting down at the end of the month.

Didn’t it seem like only yesterday when we made the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta available? Actually, it’s been nearly a year! Since then, Office 2010 has experienced over 9 million downloads — more than 6 times the size of the Office 2007 Beta.

With so many folks out there using the Office 2010 Beta, this is our gentle reminder that the Beta is set to expire on Halloween. For those of you who live outside of North America, that’s Sunday, October 31, 2010. READ ENTIRE POST

You can extend your use of the product by 60 days by downloading the fully functional 60-day Trial Version.

Microsoft Security Essentials 11 – BETA Available

This is one of those great products that keeps our kids and their parents save when online.  This product is lite and easy to get up and running.  My father-in-law who is 75 and just really started using a computer a few years ago, got this program up and running  just from the link I supplied him.  Not normally the case with most other programs.

Microsoft SP1 for WIN7 & Server 2008 R2 – Public BETA

Public Beta Now Available SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

Today, (July 12th) we announced at our annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) the availability of the public beta for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). As Gavriella Schuster and I have mentioned in previous blogs, SP1 for Windows 7 does not contain any new features specific to Windows 7. However, the new features in SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 benefit Windows 7 by providing a richer Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) experience.
