Looks like they kept that quiet :)

From Wikipedia
On April 15 2010, Microsoft announced that Office 2010 had been released to manufacturing, with those Volume Licensing customers who have Software Assurance being able to download the software from April 27.

Downloading it Now - so any one with Technet (maybe MSDN) its available (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Office_2010.jpg) both 32 & 64bit and actual sizes - beware of the fakes.

Stable release code 14.0.4763.1000

Interesting comment in the details section:
Instructions and Resources

Important: Microsoft strongly recommends the use of 32-bit (x86) versions of Office 2010, Project 2010, and Visio 2010 applications as the default option for all platforms.

Yup its because addons wont work with 64 bit. And some people are saying x64 Itunes (if you use it) doesnt work with it either. And you cant install x64, if you install x86, on a x64 system. And obviously, you cant install x64 on a x86 system.

And if you use / install x64 Sharepoint, its not fully compatible with IE 7, IE8 x64, if you use IE x64. Or Firefox

Download queued, I wonder if it's already cached locally, or if it's gonna be slow for me :(

Edit: Nup, slow as hell ... Gonna fire up IE and use the MS Download manager.

Hooray! (Another chance to save real $$ by not buying a product I don't want.) Lots of work for techs coming up.

On my netbook I can use Fn-F6 instead :p

Might stick with Office 2007 for now, until I see a killer feature.

Why is it showing up as 3GB on Bittorrent?

I don't have a Technet account, so if I want to see what it's like...

Have they made it so the Open\Save buttons are easily accessible and not hidden away on a second start menu?

I can't even install the beta. It goes to step 2 then says something about Tp: download thread exceptional.

Absolutely no idea how to fix this

I even tried uninstalling office 2007.

Oh man. not another fail piece of software

Ha blaming the software when you are trying the uncompleted version ie Beta.

Downloaded from TechNet and installed fine here. Haven't had a chance to really use it yet.

In the end I think I'll still stick to OpenOffice and Google Docs.... especially since they're free

More than likely FAKE - as per the link I posted the x86 = 650MB & x64 718, even if both were combined - that doesn't equal 3GB here are the actual (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Actual_sizes.jpg) finished sizes.

You have Vista - why do you want a killer feature?

Has Vista's suicide feature failed now? ;)

My netbook runs XP ;)

And I'm not talking about Windows, I'm talking about Office. Office 2007 does what I want.

The 3GB versions are the select versions, no fakes. They only give you the option to install one app at a time though. Handy if you just want Word or Excel etc and not the whole suite.

The Pro/Enterprise versions are the usual CD-sized .iso.

They are not ISO's either, they are .exe files.AND PIRATED.

See my original starting post - they are the RTM - currently with 1 License key available - as per technet Site Whats available (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Technet1272251005.jpg) and when other keys will be.

Thats all thats available in office at the moment, there are the web apps,project, Sharepoint, Visio - so anyone saying the Other versions -- Home and Student,Home and Business,Professional Academic as per the so called torrent - they are dreaming - they are altered or fakes.

RTM means "Retail to Marketing". In other words, it simply means "ready to be sold to the consumers".

Nope don't think so Jamuz, it means "Release To Manufacture" this means customers are going to be the beta testers, any glaring mistakes will be hot-fixed on MS Tuesdays and after a while when there are enough hot-fixes to be a nuisance Service Packs will be released.

Inevitable really and probably a good common sense solution since as we all know perfection or any form of it is simply not available in the real world.

RTM means "Retail to Marketing". In other words, it simply means "ready to be sold to the consumers". Also means "Release to Manufacturing", basically the same thing :)
RTM

The term "release to manufacturing" or "release to marketing" (both abbreviated RTM)—also known as "going gold"—is used to indicate that the software has met a defined quality level and is ready for mass distribution either by electronic means or by physical media. RTM usually means the software is actually released; it would in most cases mean that the software is being released to manufacturers, for pre-installation on ready machines, or for the manufacturer to adjust the software for their manufactured hardware and settings. The term does not define the delivery mechanism, it only states that the quality is sufficient for mass distribution. The deliverable from the engineering organization is frequently in the form of a gold master CD used for duplication or to produce the image for the web.

RTM happens prior to general availability (GA) when the product is released to the public.

I've got Office 2002
I would like to get 2010 (even if it does not have a killer feature) just to be a bit more up to date, and to hope there are a few useful features.

I had thought it stood for Rort The Masses, and signalled the kick-starting of an intensive burst of service packs and fixes for the fixes for . . .
