Become a Microsoft Beta Tester

with one comment

Windows Vista PreviewMicrosoft has now allowed users to sign up with their Passport Accounts (MSN/Hotmail) so they can receive notifications about testing many of the beta software the company is soon to run on the market. By signing up for the “Beta Experience” you will receive updates on Microsoft’s latest beta releases and FREE download links! So far I’ve only noticed offers in Microsoft’s next Windows OS called Vista and Office 2007.

Microsoft Office 2007 PreviewAfter signup you will receive newsletters from Microsoft’s TechNET (basically a community for IT pros). Just the other day I was given the opportunity to download Office 2007 Beta, which includes a large suite of software. However, I didn’t bother to download any of the Office applications because I’m pretty comfortable with Office 2003 Professional and “Beta” always gives me an uneasy feeling. These are the applications included in the Office 2007 Beta, each an individual download with their own activation keys (provided at time of download and a copy sent to your e-mail inbox):

  • Microsoft® Office Professional Plus 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Visio® Professional 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Outlook® 2007 with Business Contact Manager
  • Microsoft® Office Project Server 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Project Professional 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Groove® 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Groove® Server 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Language Pack 2007 – German
  • Microsoft® Office OneNote® 2007
  • Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Designer 2007
  • Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 – Enterprise
  • Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 – Enterprise(x64)
  • Microsoft® Office Forms Server 2007
  • Microsoft® Office Forms Server 2007 (x64)

You can read a short description about each Office 2007 program at the Office Preview site and the various suites that will be available.

Register for the beta program here.
