Microsoft Releases Office 2010 Video, Tech Preview Leaked
Microsoft is all set to launch the next versions of its flagship Windows and Office productivity suite in the next few months. But even before it can confirm the official release date for Office 2010, technical previews of the new version have started circulating in torrent sites all over the world.
While build 14.0.4302.1000 of Office 2010 is expected to arrive sometime in early 2010, Microsoft has released a teaser trailer for Office 2010 – The Movie. The viral video depicts an Office operative hunting for a hacker who goes about uploading a rogue font that kills people.
Talking about “What’s New” in Office 2010 and Office Mobile 2010, the video highlights some of the USPs of the new Office Web Applications 2010, which will reportedly be compatible with both Windows and Mac and will also run smoothly on Firefox. Office Mobile 2010 on the other hand, has been designed to run on any smartphone currently available.
Even as the tech giant put out the video, the latest round of technical previews of Office 2010 have been leaked to a number of torrent sites. Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office 2010 have been downloaded around 1,200 times through these torrent sites so far. Some of the new screenshots that have been leaked with the technical preview show Office 2010 having a full ribbon UI and somewhat different tab-style layout from Office 2007.
The leak is the second one for Office 2010, the first one being the invite-only technical preview from Microsoft that got leaked in May of this year. While Microsoft previews get leaked all the time, what makes this leak surprising is that Microsoft is yet to announce that it is ready to invite developers to preview Office 2010.
This announcement is expected at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference starting today; Microsoft is also likely to demonstrate some of the new features of suite at this conference. Notable among these are the online versions Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, all of which will reportedly be available in the new web-based Office Web applications for free.
If these reports are to be believed, Microsoft will be wading straight into a fight for supremacy in the online realm against Google. While Google’s free online office applications have failed to make a dent on Microsoft Office’s standing, the move from Microsoft to go online for free might push the web giant even further out of contention.
According to a report by ComputerWorld, Microsoft has plans of putting out an open public beta for Office 2010 later in the year, though the exact date of the Beta launch is still a closely guarded secret.

OK, so I attempted an overclock, it has quite clearly failed (check out my other post in the overclocking forums for details of the overclock). I've been using a Rampage 2 Extreme mobo, and from browsing the ASUS forums, apparently theres some sort of notorious ASUS Cold Boot issue, only cureable by an EVGA E760.

Apparently this cold boot issue happens after you fail and overclock and are effectively locked out of the bios, as when you try to boot, the screen stays black, and nothing happens what so ever.

I've tried booting from the secondary bios via the jumper pins on the board, and clearing the CMOS and reconnecting the CMOS battery.

I'm effectively freaking out here. I just spent a few days setting this system up, and $620AUD on that mobo. No way I can afford to get an EVGA E760 anytime soon. What is worse is not knowing whether the problem I have described is this notorious ASUS issue, or something that I can actually fix.

Does anyone on these forums have any experiance with this motherboard, and restoring it to the default bios, when you can't actually access the current bios?

Problem Solved. Apparently I've fried my CPU. Thanks ASUS for the quality, intelligent overclocking tools!

Un-plug your P.c. from the wall then pull the cmos battery, reset the cpu, reset ram,, then put cpu and ram back then cmos batery and plug it to the wall if that dont solve anything u ARE SREWED BIG TYM

Will do. I hope this works. Thanks again for your help.

Worlds Happiest Man right now.

Just took the thing apart, and stuck it all back together. Booted it up, and it was fine. went straight through Post, and then went to Windows 7. Shut it down now, going to put the case and such back together soon, as it's in test bench "mode".

What was interesting though, was I think I applied too much thermal paste when I put my Xigmatek Red Scorpian on, and some of it had spilled over the CPU plate. I cleaned that up too. Interesting stuff, not sure if that had any impact on the performance, do you know if the stock thermal paste with Xigmateks is conductive enough to short a CPU?


Anyways, thanks so much for your help guys.

It probably is, there are only a few really non conductive pastes.

Once you boot make sure to check the voltages on the BIOS, it should be below these values:
vDIMM (vDDR3): 1.65
vCore: 1.3750
vVTT (I remember asus giving it another name though :/): 1.35

09-07-2009, 06:26:55

Ah ok, interesting to note about the thermal paste. I'll remember that one for next time. All of the voltages were fine, those are nice guidelines. It's at about 1.12 on two of them and on about 1.21 for the last one.

Many thanks again
