    Hi everyone

    Let's get back to the issue here.

    Whether or not people were "Pirating" software and using Megaupload to "deliver" their stuff doesn't actually make Megaupload Guilty -- a perfectly valid Court in a nation totally recognized by both the UN and the USA as being a 100% sovereign, independent and a free democracy found them Not Guilty -- End of. -- no further action should be necessary whether or not certain vested interests in the USA didn't like the verdict.

    If we go down this road -- shouldn't ALL BANKS be closed down because some people use them for Money Laundering or all MOBILE PHONE NETWORKS shut down because criminals use these to assist them in illegal activities -- or we should Ban BMW's because people illegally speed in these and cause accidents killing people at times.

    If we go down this route where does it end.

    I know megaupload was used by loads of people sharing files of dubious "provenance" but that's not the point -- the law was NOT being broken as it currently stood in N.Z at the time.

    cheers

    Due to a lack of interest, Office 2013 has been cancelled

    @Jimbo: And in unrelated news, a US court ruled Casey Anthony not guilty too. That mostly boiled down to the charges they brought against her, versus what many believe she actually did.

    A court ruling on something doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. Many walk on plain technicalities, not because they were actually innocent of a crime....

    As far as Office goes, it might be available, which also means "it might not be available".
    So far as a verdict goes, "Found not guilty, which also means "Innocent".

    Yes, O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony were both happy about this. Although OJ did manage to get into more trouble and is now serving jail time.

    Not worth it to me, Microsoft won't be giving away a copy of it, after we finish beta testing it. (They've gotten stingy)

I've just received an email from Microsoft with a link to download Office 2013 RTM Evaluation (I'm currently evaluating The Preview). I'm downloading it now, but I'm confuse, it doesn't say if I have to uninstall the Preview first or install on top of it? Can anyone enlighten a little fellow? :)

Well, one of my prayers has been answered. You can disable the animations and the smooth typing "feature" of the Office 2013 Preview. When you can type fast, that smooth animation appears like a delay and the cursor is unable to keep up with your typing. Very annoying. It's a registry change...
