Internet Explorer 10 Drops Vista Support – Slashdot. The reaction on this Slashdot thread seems like a knee jerk reaction. Lets compare to how Apple does things.

Apple limits Safari to which OS it wants to support. The most current version of Safari supports 10.6 and 10.5. It doesn’t support Tiger 10.4. So for IE 10 which is the next browser and really planned for Windows 8, it breaks down as follows. Current OS support, check. Previous OS support Windows 7 check. Previous to that (Vista) or 10.4 equivalent no support. Whats the problem?

Free Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac Beta Download v.2

Mihai Andrici said here

“While Office 2010 for Windows has been tagged with a June 2010 release date, the Office for Mac OS X was named Office 2011 for Mac, with a release date set for this holiday season. Fortunately, if you want Office 2011 for Mac and want it now, you are now able to download the beta 2, a version that has been leaked online, along with the serial key you need.

“The beta 2 version of Office 2011 for Mac you can download, is the build 14.0.0.100326 and comes with one major visual UI improvement called Ribbon user interface, but also adds some features such as better integration into Office Web Apps.

“And come to think of it, these are the only major problems Microsoft Office has at the moment. In my opinion, yes, the Ribbon UI is an obvious improvement, but my guess is that the main feature/improvement in Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac (as well as the 2010 Windows version) is Microsoft’s ambition to try and respond to Google Docs easiness of use when it comes to collaborating on a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint presentation over the Web.

“But you can check out more for yourself by downloading Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac Beta 2 version free. When asked for the serial key, enter: TDMC8-7GYKM-DXJFD-7PVCC-6GX4J.”
