Microsoft Office 2007 - February 2007????

Does anyone know what happens in February 2007, after trialling the Beta version and having had your current Office software over-written. Does the Beta version reinstate the former version, or are you forced to re-install yourself?

Good question. I bet the FE would know that if he's about. He's our friendly local MS Beta tester (the ones who get to try it long before the mortals!)

that the "Restricted Function" promised is the loss of the ability to Save.

My recollection of a reply by the FE (can't find the thread but that's par for the course) is that in Feb 2007 you will need to reinstall your version of Office.

If you have a 'mission critical' PC you should definitely not install this software.
