Microsoft Expands Number of Office XP Beta Users

Microsoft Corp. announced a corporate preview release of Office XP on Wednesday. Through the Corporate Preview Program, Microsoft is expanding the number of Office beta users from 10,000 customers to more than 500,000.

Customers participating in the program will have the chance to preview the latest innovations in Office XP. The newest test version enables users to more effectively manage and control a broader set of Office features and also makes accessing information from multiple sources much easier. Another new feature of Office XP is Web collaboration abilities, which enable customers to work with other people through e-mail and annotation technologies. 

Office XP will include the latest versions of Microsoft Word 2002 word processing software, Microsoft Outlook 2002 messaging and collaboration client, Microsoft Excel 2002 spreadsheet application, Microsoft Access 2002 database application, and the Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Web site and creation tool.

The release kit costs $19.95 and can be evaluated and used until August 31. – Jim Martin
