    I cant really get excited about this I am still on 2003 and my better half got really upset when I overwrote her clipart in office 95.
    I learnt the hard way that backing up the spouse's computer is the number one priority in our house, I still get reminded of that faux pas 10 years later.

    Yea, they remember everything! Do something wrong and they bring up a million things from the past. Where do they store that stuff?! Some TB HD somewhere in there heads?

    What irate me is, when Office beta testing is completed, THEY give you an older version instead of the one you had been beta testing. I guess I shouldn't complain tho, the last MS Office I paid for was in Windows 3 (Windows for Workgroups). Kid you NOT!

    ^Huh...I never got a free copy of MS Office. I got Windows 7 Ultimate for free at the "New Efficiency" launch program when it came out...but never Office.

    Oh well, I have to carry my laptop daily for work and work has Office installed on the laptop so it's there when I need it. I don't have Office installed at home, as I simply don't require it.

    Simple enough to do, get invited to beta test thru beta.microsoft.com, and do the testing from start to finish, and post problems that you locate, and Viola you get a copy of a past version of MS Office, complete with 3 installs.

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? :)
Last summer, when office 2013 preview first came out, I opted for the binary download. I believe it was an exe file and I still have a copy of the download. But yesterday I opened up OneNote, I got prompted for an activation key. The only thing that I think might have triggered that, was that I...

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...
