Yes, Office 2007 Beta 2 is available for download, but not for free. It'll cost you $1.50. Microsoft didn't realize it would be such a popular download.

Yeah, I think it's worth downloading. I use it all the time, and it's never crashed on me once.

When I downloaded the Beta 2, it asked for my e-mail. They send you the key. Once you install it, it's only licensed to work on a few computers I believe.

It does expire - 1st Feburary 2007 or around then I believe.

However, for $1.50 wouldn't you say its worth it?
