Testing SharePoint 2010:
Also a very interesting blog already has been published for those people gladly like to play around with the beta stuff! So mostly when you try out or play around with a new release, you usually don’t want to install a complete domain scenario. So you want choose a “single server complete install of SharePoint 2010” which may become a little bit tricky ;-)
See this Blog Post for how to deal with it.
A public beta is currently announced for November 2009, so please check frequently the official Microsoft SharePoint Team Blog for getting latest info. You can here “Pre-register for SharePoint 2010 Beta” for the Beta bits and got notified when they available.
