Microsoft spills some Office 2010 beta beans

Pulls site - Google loyally caches it

Microsoft will later today announce a series of significant, Google-aping changes to its business model for the release of Office 2010, but ahead of the shindig it’s already let slip what that will entail via the suite’s official website.

Redmond mistakenly hit the button a few hours too soon and, although it has now yanked the site from the interwebs, Google has loyally cached the Office 2010 technical preview page for world+dog to view here.

This afternoon at the company’s Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, Microsoft will confirm the availability of a beta of its latest suite of Office apps that goes “way beyond the desktop”.

Meanwhile the technical preview has also, unsurprisingly, rocked up on BitTorrent sites ahead of its official release.

El Reg will have full coverage about the Office 2010 beta later today. ®
