    Any version of Office ?? anybody attempted this yet

    Hi all
    Anybody attempted to install any version of Office on W8 yet.

    I want to myself but will be busy over the next couple of days so I haven't got a huge amount of time at the moment to try this out.

    Interested primarily installing the 32 bit version of Office 2010 on W8 (64 bit developer edition) and seeing if EXCEL and Outlook both work properly.

    Hang on, be back in a bit ... it'll be 64 bit Office 2010 but, hey, what the heck.

    Office 2010 Professional Plus + Visio + Project Professional worked for me okay, albeit they ran a little slower than normal. But so did everything to an extent. No issues so far (aside BSOD's left right and centre)

    [Edit] 64bit, sorry, forgot to put that.

    Works fine.

    I'm not seeing any slow down at all. Excel is great and Outlook is good, too.

    Oh, yeah, all of the updates came through automatically, too. Updating to Office 2010 Service Pack 1 now ...
