Streaming Install of Office 2010 Beta

 

This is clever, Microsoft are going to offer a version of Office 2010 that you can install on demand using the App-V technology that they acquired from Softricity a few years ago.

Read the link to the Office 2010 team blog here and you can try the beta for yourself here
