i think we can blame the hammered server or MS instead
but i got my office 2007 activated in 30 minutes ago, about 1:00 AM

and i'm so lazy to create a new topic for that , BUT any feelings so far
or is it to fast to ask,
i personaly think it's faster then beta 1 and TR andit's not eating system memory any more, so , i'm positive and vaiting future buids

cheers

If Office 2007, Beta 2 worth the download?

Between what I figured out on my own and what I saw at the Microsoft TS2 seminar last week, I'd say Office 2007 is definitely worth it. The best way I can describe it is "faster". Not faster in the sense that documents opwn or save faster, but faster in the sense that many common tasks can be accomplished in 3 or less mouse clicks, rather than digging through menus just to find the appropriate option to pull up a clunky dialog box.

For example, you can preview font changes live in the text of a word document. You can also highlight a table in Excel and create a chart in under 30 seconds. The interoperability between applications is also greatly improved. You can create an Excel spreadsheet inside a Word document (one click, no less), then click inside the table and get the full excel toolbars at your fingertips - WITHOUT having to hop over to excel first.
