    The subscription price is WELL worth what you get! Microsoft software is a tiny bit of what TechNet is. The knowledge base is a true treasure.

    Actually the MSDN and TechNet libraries are on line for free...

    But the subscription is definitely worth the price in the right circumstances. It cannot be used for running a business though, it is for experimental, learning and investigatory purposes only.

    You got that right, I couldn't possibly agree more with you. I like to work in dim environments, and always go with a darker theme and this version of office is simply so bright that I cannot hardly even use it. I hope that they give us some options in the final release...as I don't see myself adjusting to this.

    It is a bit hard on the eyes, isn't it.

    Say WHAT?? Nonsense, I've been a TechNet subscriber since Windows NT4, and used it within the companies I have worked for. For various purposes from software updates, to trouble shooting known problems that I have ran into.

    That's exactly what I said! You can use it for experimenting with the software test setups, syetem debugging etc. As long as none of the software is actually used for day to day desktop or server operations where actual licenses must be bought.

    I.e. it is NOT a set of 50 liscences to install server, desktop OSes and office to run your buisness on.

    Holy cow.

    OIC FSeal, I misread what your meaning was/is. I thought you were saying it wouldn't benefit a enterprise system, and would only be usable for an end-user. My bad.

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...
