Microsoft Releases a TON of Beta 2010 Software


October and November have been big months for Microsoft updates.  Microsoft has released for public use and testing the beta versions of many of their corporate line-up products.


The in-beta applications are free to use, and I find it an excellent alternative to using limited evaluation copies, not to mention it’s a great opportunity to play with the latest software coming out of MS!


Here’s the list of the beta business software and tools just released from Microsoft:

    Has anybody tried out Outlook 2010 yet? It's pretty awesome, but for some reason, every so often when you exit Outlook, the main process will stay open until you force it to quit. This gets pretty annoying after a while. Does this happen to anyone?

    I've been using it since it went public beta. Outlook 2010 drags from
    time to time for me but I have a huge mailbox and a lot of pst files.
    Overall, so far so good though.

    In regards to your problem I honestly don't close outlook very often
    so I've not noticed it not closing all the processes. <smile>

    I have 9 pst (inboxes.. mostly IMAP) and then 2 archive PST's.. it runs about the same as 2007.

    I really don't close outlook that often either, but it happens :D

    Do you notice very high usage of RAM as well (considering you have lots of accounts like me!)?

    Sounds like me :)

    Yeah, things get sluggish from time to time but overall, it's still pretty snappy. I took a look at memory usage and I seem to be hovering at ~60megs. Not to bad.

    In regards to the lingering Outlook process after I close out, it does hang around for about 5 seconds but after that it's gone. Not to bad I guess..?

    I think I'm going to try and reinstall it, ha. It doesn't feel like working right.

    With my Outlook (07 and 2010), my memory usage is always around 120megs.. ridiculous! But, it is what it is.

    That’s a lot of software to download. Thanks for the post. I’m still on XP, so not sure if all of them will work out.
