Your Encarta 2005 beta kit has shipped! It left the Microsoft shipping department this afternoon and is now making its way to your doorstep. Thank you so much for your patience as we prepared these kits for shipping. I had hoped in a previous email that the kits would be shipped out on Friday, since we sent the beta build off to manufacturing Thursday night, but it appears to have taken longer than I expected to duplicate, assemble, package, and ship the kits.
Remember: once you get your beta kit and install the software, go to BetaPlace (https://beta.microsoft.com) and fill out the Setup/Configuration survey.
I hope you enjoy this beta release of Encarta Reference Library 2005 as much as we will! Happy bug hunting!
