    ....Reminds me of the Win 7 Beta, when MS backtracked and ended up giving everyone a copy - and then screwed it up by issuing Updgrade disks/keys instead of Full ones.
    Notice, they're not calling it a Beta this time - so they can sert a new precedent, and not have to give anything away??

    Never thought of that Noel, BUT yeah Microsoft JUST might be that sneaky. Even that upgrade to Windows 7 took forever to get to me. Weird thing is though the Office package came REALLY fast after the testing had completed. EVEN though it wasn't MS Office 2010
    they sent MS Office 2007. BUT it was an update to my MS Office XP LoL

    Heh - I didn't get invited to the 2007 or 2010 Betas - last one I got was 2003 (because a friend threatened one of the Beta team on my behalf<g>).
    I'm tryng to wangle my way into the Tech Beta for Win8 but no luck yet - guess I'll have to go with the CP :|
