Microsoft Office 2000

Our reviewers will be updating this page as they evaluate the beta and GA versions. GA is the final release version sold to end-users, what Ali likes to call "the gamma test phase".

This page will continue to be updated until we have reviewed the final release version of the software.


Microsoft Office 2000 beta is due to be available in Australia mid-December. Surpisingly, Microsoft plan to charge their unpaid testers. During a recent trip to Australia, Bill Gates said, "We're not in the software development business -- we're in the testing business. Hmm.

Cost of beta is USA$19.95, one of our contacts says expect to be A$49.95 in Oz.

Information about the beta version is available on the Microsoft site.
