    Hi Guys,

    I have a question. Is it physically possible to use both Office 2003 and
    2010 on one computer. I would like to try the new version of the software
    without removing the old one.

    Thanks :)

    Hi AP,

    Theoretically yes, but I don't recommend trying it with the 2010 beta.

    Office 2010 is a Beta. I strongly recommend for you not to do that

    In case Bob, macropod and Peter's comments didn't convince you, "ditto".
    Don't use beta software on a production system unless you are willing to
    reformat and re-install everything.

    I'd also recommend posting 2010 beta questions to the beta forum:

    Virtual machines are another approach to dual booting.
