I'll throw my hat in the ring. Why not? Been in all the previous ones since probably Office 2003 or so.

In my own case, it's "back" into the ring - I first got into beta-testing Office via invite during the Windows 95 beta.  (I was coming from WordPerfect for DOS, as WordPerfect for Windows had no public beta - yes, I was ALSO one of those sniggering of the earlier flub-up committed by Microsoft with Word 5.0 for DOS - and I have been in some beta of Office ever since.

Looks like a generic Azure error. Perhaps they got more than enough applications.

Thanks! There's a thrill about getting to try and use technology before the general release date and seeing new developments, hopefully this will help weed out any problems, as in the point of a beta and hopefully listen to our ideas. :)

What problems, Office has more features than any other software in its class!

What is this about?

 

Is Microsoft allowing to upload your own Office Add-ons or something  similar? so they included it by default on his app, or is this the Office Store?

 

any help will be welcome.
