Are you Groovey? Got SharePoint Designer? Got Project 2007? Office 2007 Pro? NO ??? Dude, what are you waiting for? This is the first time we’ve made all of those products immediately available on such an intergalactic scale. I heard the Klingons were into Groove. Sorry, we’re still working on the localization for the Klingon language. Apparently it isn’t as popular on Earth as we thought.
Head on over to http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/beta/getthebeta.mspx and get with the program. If you want us to ship you glass, click into the Receive by Snail Mail link. Got a hot fibre connection and you want to download all of the products in the next few seconds? Well head over to the download link and we’ll generate a purdy page complete with your own product ids and download links. The screenshot to the right is a pic of me going through the process (click it to get a larger image). I selected all of the products and after hitting enter it generated download url’s, product ids, etc. Way kewl!!!
I am really impressed the Office Team did this. I do believe it’s the first time we’ve had such a mass quantity of Beta products directly available to the entire planet. Can you imagine the amount of data that will be downloaded in the next few months.
Now that you have all of them, what are you going to go? I’d love to hear about any applications developed, impressions of Groove, see good project plans, and more importantly how Microsoft is saving your business money.
We need to just put all of the beta products on microsoft.com and beat the living daylights out of those hard drives. You game?
Where the heck is Vista?
Enjoy my friends.
