Microsoft launches Office 2010 Beta on MSDN, TechNet
Microsoft posted the Office 2010 Beta to its developer and IT subscription sites today, another clue that it will soon offer the preview to the general public.
Both the MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) and TechNet sites now host the Office 2010 Beta in 32- and 64-bit editions, which can be downloaded by the developers and IT professionals who have subscriptions to those services.
TechNet, for example, has posted the downloads here (Windows Live ID login required), while the MSDN site sports a message saying that the beta is now available. The TechNet downloads are for Office Professional Plus 2010, an edition that will be available only to enterprises and organizations that purchase licenses in volume.
Other builds of the Office 2010 Beta, which have already leaked to the Internet, can be found on numerous file-sharing sites.
