Microsoft announced that folks out there using the Office 2010 Beta, this is our gentle reminder that the Beta is set to expire on Halloween. For those of you who live outside of North America, that's Sunday, October 31, 2010. "Actually, it's been nearly a year! Since then, Office 2010 has experienced over 9 million downloads -- more than 6 times the size of the Office 2007 Beta."
As the instructions and the licensing agreement first explained when you downloaded Office 2010 Beta, you'll have to uninstall the Beta software from your computer before you can use released version of Office 2010. To do this, go to Control Panel in Windows 7 (or Vista) and click Uninstall a Program.
