Microsoft Microsoft plans next week to charge a nominal fee for Office 2007 Beta 2 downloads, in a move that runs counter to the practice held by most software companies. Consumers who download the 2007 Microsoft Office system Beta 2 will be charged USD 1.50 per download, beginning next Wednesday, a Microsoft spokeswoman said.

So many negative reactions. And I bet all from Linux users, or at least non-Microsoft software users. But you know what? You're not FORCED to beta test Office Beta. And something tells me that it won't make any difference at all in the number of testers. People interested in Office don't give a damn to pay 1.50$ for a download.
