    I wonder if there will be student editions/pricing. I would take the $20 price tag I paid for Windows 7 anyday!

    Also.. anyone know where I could find a list of the bug fixes they made from Beta to RC?

      And WHERE did you get a copy of Office 2010 RC?? Just checked my MSDN and MLVS site and only thing out there is the Beta from November… Looks like the RC was released however back on 2/5/2010 however it’s only available to TAP users from the MS Connect site…. :(

        I got an email one day from MSDN saying that Outlook RC was available to subscribers. I used to have a subscription, but deactivated it a while back when I changed jobs, but I still get the newsletters.

          You can grab it of the torrents but…. yeah, best of luck there if you don’t mind a little malware to go along with it :)

          Just checked and I don’t see it on MSDN :( :( :(
