    Office 2010 loads up insanely fast now. I'm really looking forward to the RTM version early next year.

    Installed it and love it.
    Very attractive looking upgrade and so quick!
    Will now be trying to convince the powers that be to let me do a big upgrade of all machines to Windows 7 and Office 2010 next summer as well as Server 2008 upgrades

    Anyone can download it from: Here as long as they have a Live account.

    Ironically it wouldn't download in IE8 for me, had to use Firefox.

    That's great. Last I heard was that it was only available for TechNet users.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Loving some of the new Outlook features.

    Conversation grouping, quick steps, the easy to find and use 'Mailbox cleanup' (it shows how much space is used! as a bar!! woo!!)

    Shame it'll be an age until we bite the bullet and go for an update.

    I downloaded and installed last night and I was pleasantly surprised. I like how they brought back remnants of the "File" menu that we were all used to. I also like how Outlook now has Jump Menus in Win7 for things like new mail message/contact...

    I don't know I think it looks rather ugly, they have ditched the nice blue colour and the office button but brought back the File Menu!
