Office 2010 Official Technical Preview

I had signed up for the Microsoft Office 2010 Technical Preview.  I wasn’t sure how quickly it would work, if at all.  Lo and Behold, I got my invitation pretty quickly.  It actually took me a while to realize it because they sent me the invitation to Hotmail.

Who the heck uses Hotmail these days?  Actually, maybe it’s unfair.  I currently have Hotmail sent to bounce any message not in my address book.  Interestingly (or not), messages from anyone at Microsoft are exempted from spam blocking.  When I used to have it open, I would get a surreal amount of spam to the inbox.  GMail has done a good job of keeping the spam in its place.  However, this was years ago when I last tried Hotmail.  Has it improved?  Anyone use it primarily?

Anyway, I downloaded the latest build and it is more recent than my previous version.  I installed it at home and I am downloading it at work.  Thank you Microsoft.  I appreciate you helping me with my beta fix.

At some point Microsoft really needs to put a powerful online version up for $5 a month per application.  They can’t keep milking the desktop forever.
