Did you know that over 5.5 million users have downloaded our Office 2010 Beta? This makes Office 2010 Beta the largest beta program we have had in the history of Office. We asked this broad set of beta users for feedback, and the response has been terrific. The level of positive feedback we have received makes us feel both proud (of representing this business) and humble (about working on a product that is important to so many people). We are also very excited about the many great stories our customers are telling about using this new product. Here are some interesting facts that I want to share from my read of the feedback we received.
For more than 20 years, we've worked on Office with a clear aspiration: to give our users the best productivity experience. Nine out of 10 of our beta users found Office 2010 to be an improvement over their current productivity suite, and this fact becomes even more exciting considering the fact that 70% of beta users are actually users of Office 2007, our current release. Here are some additional data points from our 2010 beta users:
As you read some of this, you might be wondering what Office 2010 looks like. You might be curious to see what Backstage would allow you to do. Or you might be asking what Sparklines would look like for that data set you are working on. So, go ahead and try the Office 2010 Beta!! Then tell us what you think. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

A Question, I Made a PowerPoint presentation in 2010 that runs 1 hr. and 7 min. It has music with it. PowerPoint says it is converting it to video and may take time. It has been running for 22 hours and shows no progress in the task bar. Program offers no errors or problems. Claims to be doing its job. How long do I have to wait? I could write the code in long hand almost as fast.
@Warren Simmons - Sorry to hear you're running into problems with converting the presentation to video. This shouldn't be happening, and in particular, some progress should be happening on the progress bar.
Our task bar is based on which slide we're currently exporting, so it sounds like we're not even making it past the first slide. If you could share the file with me (allhuan AT microsoft DOT com) or just the details of what's on that first slide, I'd love to take a look and try to see what we're running into.
Thanks for your feedback, Warren.

For Allen Huang. I would love to send you this program if I could find a way. The file is about 965,456 KB and will not go via E-mail any way I try. Can I save it to a different file type? Or is there a better way. I even tried to save the first ten slides as a print file and send them, but that didn't work. Any suggestions? I have several major presentations coming up in the near future and really need to be able to convert them for DVD. I will send you an E-mail via my personal account with my contact information if you can use it.

Here is all the information I think you may want. First slide is built on blank from choices of new slide. Theme is office, Used text box to add: "Beaumont Presbyterian Church", second text box to add: "Our First 125 Years". Font was Old English Script.Show starts automaticly with first slide. Sound starts then also and runs through out. Transition is 1.07 seconds and slide advances after 18 seconds. This applies to all. Audio playback is loop until stopped and across slides.Fade in 1,50 and no fade out. No Picture effects. View is color and normal. Show is from beginning with no animation and nothing used on the design tab. I hope this helps. Still won't save as WMV or convert either. Thanks, Warren
To your point about Outlook sync, the problem is with the Blackberry redirector rather than with Outlook 2010. RIM will have to rewrite its sync software since CDO 1.21 is no longer supported on Outlook 2010. Hope that helps.
@Warren Did you end up sending me an email with your contact info? Thank you so much for following up with some info. I haven't been able to figure out what you're running into, but I can give you some details on sending me your file via email.
Yes, I did send you an E-mail with my contact info included. Anything you can help me with I would appreciate greatly. Warren
@Warren - I apologize about this, but I don't seem to have gotten your email. Would you mind re-sending your email address?
Sent it to you via my yahoo mail address.
My XP -64 is a faithful and stable system. I am puzzled that Office 10 beta cannot be installed and woder if the full version will be the same. I wont downgrade to XP -32 and still a long way from seeing Windows 7 as a major advantage to me. Has anyone else managed to load Office 10 beta on a system running XP -64.......and yes my system has service pack 2 and all available upgrades!
How do I reset the frequency of the auto recovery feature of power point 2010 beta? The program spends more time recovering than I get to spend working on a project.
When I installed Office 2010 beta, the release notes promised me a discount on the final version of the Office when beta expires. Where is it?
