In my previous post Setup: Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Technical Preview, as pointed out by Ganesh I didn’t mention the system requirements for Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Technical Preview.

So here it is:

Component Requirement
Computer and processor 500 MHz processor or higher
Memory 256 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher
Hard disk 2 gigabytes (GB). A part of this disk space is free after installation if the original download package is removed from the hard disk.
Drive CD-ROM drive or DVD drive
Display 1024 x 768 or higher-resolution monitor
Operating system Windows® XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) (32-bit), Windows Vista® with SP1 (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows® Server 2003 R2 with SP2 (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows® Server 2008 with SP1 (32-bit or 64-bit), Windows® 7 (32-bit or 64-bit). Terminal Server and Windows on Windows (WOW) (which allows installing 32-bit versions of Office 2010 on 64-bit operating systems) are supported.
Additional Requirements and product functionality can vary based on the system configuration and operating system.

The requirements is same as Office 2007, which is very good and the other thing to note is that the 64-bit Office 2010 is not supported on Windows XP 64-bit and Microsoft has no plans to support it in future either
