Office 2010 Beta Downloads Go Live for TechNet and MSDN Subscribers, Public Availability Soon

Redmond-based software giant Microsoft announced that Office 2010 Beta has become available for download. For the time being the software can be downloaded only by developers that are part of the MSDN and TechNet developer programs. Regular users will be able to download Office 2010 Beta sometime later this month. Rumor on the web has it that Microsoft will make Office 2010 Beta available to the general public as soon as tomorrow, the 18th of November.

Keep in mind that this is nothing but a rumor. Microsoft is keeping the date when Office 2010 Beta hits public availability under wraps. The only thing we know for sure right about now is that the official Office Beta download page has gone live (visit here). On that page, Microsoft has already posted links for the public to download Office Home and Business 2010 Beta, Office Professional 2010 Beta and Office Professional Plus 2010 Beta. The catch is that if you click the download button you’ll be directed to a site that bears the following message:

“The Office 2010 Beta will be available soon. Please come back later and try again.
If you'd like to see it in action, take a look at the demos."

I guess this is confirmation that Office 2010 Beta will become publicly available for download soon. All we have to do is wait…or do we? The 32 and 64-bit versions of Office 2010 Beta have already appeared on torrent sites. Comments posted on various torrent sites have it that the leaked software works; still, many downloaders complained that it only works for 30 days. To make Office 2010 Beta work longer than that, the user must provide a product key, and product keys are not yet available as the software has not been released to the general public.

When Microsoft will eventually make Office 2010 Beta available for public download, users will be able to download the following:
Office Home and Business 2010 Beta – includes Excel, PowerPoint, Office Web Apps, OneNote, Outlook, and Word.
Office Professional 2010 Beta – includes Access, Excel, Office Web Apps, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Publisher
Office Professional Plus 2010 Beta - includes Access, Communicator, Excel, Infopath, Office Web Apps, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and SharePoint Workspace.
