Office 2010 beta lands in laps of MSDN, TechNet coders

Final countdown to public testing begins

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Microsoft has begun pumping the Office 2010 beta out to members of its MSDN and TechNet developer groups, ahead of the code’s imminent arrival later this week.

The vendor also pushed out the 64-bit beta version of Office Web Apps to subscribers yeterday.

The company will almost certainly spin out the code for wider public testing on Wednesday.

That’s the day when Microsoft’s Office veep Kurt Del Bene will take to the stage at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles to deliver a keynote speech to the MS faithful.

Microsoft has already set up a website for users to download the public beta from, however it’s not ready yet.

Instead a message simply reads: “The Office 2010 beta will be available soon. Please come back later and try again.” ®
