Microsoft shakes up its Office business

This morning, Microsoft released more details about its pricing for Office 2010, which is due in June 2010 (my colleague Mary Jo Foley had the numbers and details bright and early).
What was unusual about this announcement is not the numbers themselves but rather the sea change they represent for Microsoft’s traditional selling model. With Office 2010, we’ll see some fairly radical changes. I see three trends at work here:

I'm still using Office 2003. Until they give me the option of changing ribbon menu to standard menu; forget it.

I don't get a choice.
MS Office is the suite used at work and since I do a bit of work from home I have to use MS Office for compatibility.

I don't mind really because I quite like MS Office, been using it for eons, and I wouldn't want to have to learn a whole new Office suite.

Hi there
Beta version of 2010 is good EXCEPT for Outlook 2010 with IMAP -- still to many problems and Outlook is a MUST HAVE app (work etc etc).

They need to possibly do a Release Candidate before final release.

I like the rest of the suite however.
