Test Drive Office 2007 for Windows

while not a mac story, Ars has a story on how Microsoft is letting people test drive the new Office 2007 beta not by downloading it, but by running it over the Internet using Citrix, which allows you to log into a remote machine much like VPC, or Timbuktu. I find this quite novel actually, as this means people can try true betas out, no pirated copies, no betas to uninstall or muck up your computer.

  1. Yeah, that is great, but it also means it is a controlled environment. It allows you to truly beta test the features . . . . .cool. . . . .however, it does not allow any kind of beta testing for hardware or environment interaction.
