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 $1.50 per download, beginning next Wednesday at 6 p.m. PDT, a Microsoft spokeswoman said. "Since the end of May, Beta 2 has been downloaded more than 3 million times…That’s 500 percent more than what was expected," the spokeswoman said. "The fee helps offset the cost of downloading from the servers."

My Thoughts; Leave it to MS to do something universally stupid like charging for a Beta.  I guess any company will make money somehow.  Im still waiting for Starbucks to start charging for the Cardboard sleeve.    Now if they charge a $1.50 for the final release, I will be impressed.  Start your download engines now people.
