About a month ago I wrote about the Technical Preview on Windows Live. Since then we’ve seen a lot of interest in Office Web Apps and received numerous requests from people wanting to try them out. To make this possible, we are opening up the Technical Preview and inviting more people to try out the Office Web Apps.
For a limited time, you can sign-up for a Technical Preview account here (if you are already a part of the technical preview, this link will generate an error): http://skydrive.live.com/acceptpreview.aspx/.documents?aobrp=browse.
The features in this expanded Technical Preview are the same as the initial preview; however, during the preview (and beyond) you can expect to see new functionality added over time. Thanks for helping us make Office Web Apps even better!
Program Manager, Office Web Apps
Might just be me, but the link for the Technical Preview doesn't work.
I'm getting an error taht states "That item seems to be missing" on the skydrive site.
@Sean: same here, I was hoping to try out the editing features and the link seems dead.
yep! dead link! someone seems to change his mind.... :P
If you're already signed up for the tech preview, you'll get that error message. You'll also get an error message if you're not in the US or Japan.
Im outside US & JP, but was able to get in.
The only problem that i have is I cant Open a new Word Document.
Not currently in the tech preview and located in Australia. Am receiving the following message:
"That item seems to be missing
Someone may have deleted or moved the item, or you may not have permission to view it. If you have questions about this item, contact the person who created it."

Please don't display apps that are not available yet, e.g., OneNote, or gray them out so that we don't waste our time trying to do something that is impossible.
Why don't you say in the blog that it doesn't work in UK?

Better yet, make OneNote available. Pretty please. :)
