Windows Server 2003 News:
  1. Technology Evaluations: Order the Microsoft Office System Beta Today! "Try the Microsoft Office System beta and see how Microsoft Office has evolved into a more comprehensive and integrated system." Sure. Pay to Beta! Times out - November 30, 2003. "...Office System Beta 2 Kit 2003 is time-limited software that expires when the user's computer system clock reaches November 30, 2003; at which time the product will operate under reduced functionality mode limiting end-user options and operations."

    More importantly, this is an opportunity to delve into Microsoft's product offerings to see if this is something you really need or want to work with in your organization. If you're a Reseller, go ActionPak to evaluate. If you're evaluating the technology for implementation within your Organization as a User, then maybe the TechNet subscription. And for those Developers working that angle, look into the MSDN subscriptions. (5/6/2003)
