Michael C. Oldenburg from the Microsoft Office Blog sends the following gentle reminder about the upcoming expiration of the Office 2010 Beta:

Didn't it seem like only yesterday when we made the Microsoft Office 2010 Beta available? Actually, it's been nearly a year! Since then, Office 2010 has experienced over 9 million downloads — more than 6 times the size of the Office 2007 Beta.

With so many folks out there using the Office 2010 Beta, this is our gentle reminder that the Beta is set to expire on Halloween. For those of you who live outside of North America, that's Sunday, October 31, 2010.
