In this post I'd like to give you some information where to locate old software. You wonder, why do I need to look for an old programs ? 
The answer is you need to run the old version for some reason.  For example the newer program is not really better than the previous one, or there are so many issues that you prefer to use the old version instead of upgrading to the latest version.
Other examples could be in case you are a programmer and you need to test a program with other application in many different versions , for example, Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.0, 1.5.0.7, etc. or Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5, 6.0...

Do you have some problems to identify the right hardware components ?  I found a brilliant Computer hardware Chart made by a member of Deviantart (~Sonic840) that shows in a large jpg file various types of plugs, ports, sockets and RAM.  Really interesting to see the right name for computer ports and plugs.

Microsoft has released a technical preview of Office 2010. This is a pre-beta release intended for feedback, as well as promotion, so it's not feature-complete and may change before the final release planned for the first half of 2010.

Nevertheless, it offers a fair guide to what Microsoft is planning for its ubiquitous office suite. The short summary is 'more of the same': more of the controversial Office Ribbon UI, more features for products that arguably have too many already, and more integration with SharePoint so that users are drawn deeper into Microsoft's platform.
