The Office 2010 Beta site states:

"Upon installation of your Office 2010 Beta, you may be offered the
option to Upgrade or Customize. Clicking Upgrade results in only the
newer Office 2010 Beta product remaining on your machine, but you may
explicitly select to have multiple versions of Office coexist with the
exception of Outlook and SharePoint Workspace (formerly known as
Microsoft Office Groove 2007). These applications cannot co-exist with
previous versions so you will need to select one version of the program
to have installed on your computer. If you are not offered the option to
Upgrade or Customize, the default behavior will be for your Office 2010
Beta to co-exist with your previous Office product(s)."

Has anyone here loaded the Word 2010 Beta alongside an existing Word
2003? If so, has your Word 2003 continued to work normally?

I'm looking only at Word at this point, so the Outlook and SharePoint
Workspace issues mentioned above won't affect me.
