  • After extensive searching, I still have no clue about what's new about the Office 2010 support. What has changed in MDT regardin the Office 2010 deployment? Can you be more specific about this?

  • Most of the changes required to support Office 2010 were simple, just changing the text and testing everything to make sure it works.  We did have to make a couple of changes in regards to the 64-bit version of Office 2010.

  • this sounds great guys - is there a release date planned for actual release (not beta) - we're probably going to put the beta in our test env but it would be nice to know a proper release date... Cheers!
