Well, news have been spreading around in the Internet world that even before Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Beta is officially released for testing, there were already torrents found online. Personally, I won’t really recommend any one to try downloading these unauthorised software, fearing that there could be bugs, of even viruses that come along with the setup.
On the other hand, if you truly want to be an official beta tester, why not do it the right way – via the Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Program Nomination Form [Microsoft via Digital Inspiration]. The new version, known as Office 2010 Starter Edition, will include Word and Excel applications but with limited functionality.
Here is a comment provided by the official:
All you need to do is use Office Starter 2010 Beta at home over the next few months, and let us know what you think. Office Starter 2010 includes Microsoft Word Starter 2010 and Microsoft Excel Starter 2010, which are great for basic tasks like writing letters, editing your resume, or creating a family budget.
The public beta of Office 2010 will start later this year though you can try Office Web Apps now itself.
