Default Office 2010 Beta messes up Thunderbird a little..

Just a warning.. if you install Office 2010 Beta it will mess up Mozilla
Thunderbird! Atleast it did for me.

My settings are still fine, my emails are still there, but without waring it
did the following:

I had it pinned on the top of my Start menu, it removed it and replaced it
with Outlook 2010. I had it on the Quickstart menu, which it changed to
Outlook also..

I've already seen enough to make me want to not use the product. They're
redesigned the ribbon a little, but I like the "pizza wheel". They removed
that and made it a plain button now.

When uninstalling it replaced my Thunderbird quickstart with an Outlook icon
and changed the shortcut to open Internet Properties.

Why are you complaining about a Beta. A Beta is a Beta and is not supposed to be
installed on a production machine. It is only for testing

That's a normal behavior for Outlook. When Outlook gets installed, it makes
itself the Default program for the services it provides. You have to either
not install it, OR go back and set the program you want as the Default for
the services that Outlook offers. This has happened for a long time.

Not complaining.. just waring others who might install it also, to expect
some problems with Thunderbird.

Yeah, unfortunately the Beta installs everything without asking me.

If you install Outlook it becomes the default email app, it always has,
nothing to do with the beta version

Yes, that's fine, but it specifically went in and found two links to
Thunderbird, which !I! setup. One in my quicklaunch, one on my Start menu.

I already had Outlook on both the start menu and quicklaunch.

I use Thunderbird for my work email and have setup Outlook to check my home.

That's what happens when you play with software that's being tested ...
