office_beta2.jpgHopefully, you got in on the Office 2007 Beta program earlier this year. If you did, be sure to check in around 9 a.m. Redmond time for a Technical Refresh of Beta 2. The productivity suite build looks to be the last public beta package before prime time product availability in….well, that depends on who you ask.

The general expectation is that Office 2007 availability will coincide with Vista andor in January 2007. How’s that for an exact guess? If you have used the beta 2 version of Office 2007, be sure to share your impressions and tell the folks that missed out what you do (and don’t) like from a productivity standpoint in the new Office. I’ve used it since May as my full-time productivity suite; my overall impressions are that Beta 2 was pretty solid, so I’m looking forward to see what was fixed. BTW: according to Daniel Escapa of the OneNote team, this TR will include an update to OneNote 2007 as well!

  1. Hi James,

    Is there any way that I can still get into the beta program for the new One Note? I’m getting a Satellite R20 Tablet PC to update my current Tablet and I’m keen to use this if possible. All the best, Jon Dee, Sydney, Australia

  4. I agree with you KCT, Office 2007 beta 2 is VERY solid! My family LOVES it over the previous Office editions.

    Please do a video of the new improvements for those that haven’t taken the plunge for the 2007 Technical Refresh.
