Man, the only one I got into was the Click 2 Run Office 2010 beta. It installs over the web and includes Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Powerpoint and Word in a virtual environment . The only thing I don't like about it is I can't pin the icons to the taskbar.

I got the identical email today also. (Identical to Jedixo) I am downloading at this moment. I am excited to see if Visio and Publisher has been made any easier to maneuver around in. I don't have much hope for Word. I understand that the infamous ribbon, while somewhat modified, is still prominent.
