It looks like Microsoft is claiming that Office 2007 Beta 2 has received over 200,000 downloads. I would say that sounds about right, because BetaNews said it has been downloaded 5,500 times from themselves and I have had 1,800+ follow the download link (I’m sure there were some people who clicked the link more than once).
That is quite a number for being released just over a day. I am trying to determine whether Vista will have more downloads or fewer downloads when it goes public. I think more people would download Office 2007 Beta 2 because they can always easily uninstall it. With Vista they will have to wipe their whole computer. It’s a tough call though.
