We're Looking for Office 365 Testers

This is a special request from Jeff Schwartz, Redmond's editor-at-large: Microsoft has released the public beta of Office 365, the company's most ambitious step yet towards bringing its most widely used apps to the cloud. With this successor to BPOS, many users will see the new features of Office 365 for the first time. Office 365, which aims to bring parity to the premises and cloud versions of Exchange, SharePoint and Lync, also brings Office to the cloud. That promises to change the way many people create and share information, as well as how IT Pros administer the provisioning end-user accounts.

Whether you're an administrator or an end user, we want to hear what you like and dislike about the new Office 365 beta for a feature article we are putting together. Please drop a line to jschwartz@1105media.com, and share your experiences.
