Microsoft is gearing up to shut down the testing program that helped build the next iteration of the Office System. In this regard, the company has sent email to testers notifying “Thank you for participating in the Technical Beta program for Microsoft Office 2010. Your feedback and suggestions have helped make this our best release of Office and SharePoint! As we approach the end of this beta, we want to let you know that our Office 2010 Technical Beta program on Connect will close on Friday, April 30th. After this date, you will no longer be able to access the Technical Beta program,” an excerpt from the email sent to testers reads. “On behalf of all the Microsoft Office 2010 product teams, we would like to say ‘Thank You’ for participating in the beta, and we look forward to working with you again in the future. Sincerely, Microsoft Office 2010 Technical Beta Program Team,” the email further adds.
