Testing Vista and Office 2007

I got quite a few questions on Vista and Office 2007 triggered by my posts on Bootcamp. I'm personally waiting for Vista RC1 before I rebuild my MacBook Pro. When I do that, I also plan an updated install script I will post on my blog. My hope is that I can start in just a few more days :-)

Currently, Vista is not available for downloads.

Reading the Vista team blog, it seems you will be able to get back on board when Release Candidate 1 will come out:

Also users of Office 2007 have been asking how they can provide feedback. The easiest way to provide feedback is to use the ‘Send a smile’ tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=A2E1F4E2-BC0F-4403-B09F-7A677D55F274&displaylang=en

Some Office products also have a dedicate site that allows users to log bugs: http://connect.microsoft.com/availableconnections.aspx

And for other products I suggest using the newsgroups: http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/community/newsgroups.mspx

Enjoy discovering the new features in Office 2007 and be sure to get on the Vista RC1 train in a couple more days (hopefully).
