Today’s post is just a quick status update to keep everyone in the loop on the progress Office 2010 is making, as well as to provide finalized details for our Office 2010 Technology Guarantee.

Starting today, consumers who purchase and activate Office 2007 will be able to download Office 2010 at no additional cost when it becomes available in June 2010.

All you need to be eligible for this program – Office 2010 Technology Guarantee – is the following:

It would be nice if those who have tried Office 2010 could provide an experience report. I have Office 2007 and did not want to mess it up with the 2010 distro. One useful new feature I saw was the "save as video" in Power Point. But I am sure there are other interesting new features. Question is whether they are worth dishing out another $150 (for home and student).

My school is part of the MSDN alliance so I hope it will be up on there once it is released. I like using one note mostly though. Office 2010 for word more simple but while its more simple to find stuff, people who used 07 (my friend couldn't find how to make columns) are confused or lack common sense to see where things are. I can see if your using Office for the first time it would feel a bit overwhelming but would be easier to find things. For people coming off 03 and 07 you maybe a hit or miss, since it uses ribbons/tabs for everything. I found it easier using tabs for all my things although. I wish it had tabs for my documents instead of making multiples on the task-bar ( on W7 idk about vista or xp ) since i am sort of a minimalist.

Pro
1. I like it being able to use black, gray or white theme layout
2. More sleek and agile at // least for me
3. Ribbon/Tab infer-face with neatly labeled buttons easier to see/find
4. PPT more simple to use but nicer when looking for some options.

Con- FOR ME
1. Pressing File button hides your document / ppt/ etc and you may forgot what you wanted to do at all. Con for me but more so because my forgetfulness
2. RSS feed function for outlook does not work how Windows Live Mail does, but Should I really compare those?
3. RSS feed function, or email function I cant customize it to How I like I suppose.

I like One note a lot though once again.


*Have yet to utilize everything for any maxim potential.

So if I buy the student version of Office 2007 and activate it would I be able to apply for this offer.

Just that the only reason that I'm using the 2010 beta is that I didn't want to buy Office 2007 only for 2010 to be released later in the year.

Sounds like a very good deal though.

I'm very interested in an answer to QuackPot's question. I'm waiting for the same student version.

That's what it looks like. Similar to when you bought Vista after July 09, you got a free upgrade for Windows7. They just want to get ahead of the curve.
The only downside is that you have to do the learning process twice as I understand that there are quite some differences between the 2007 and 2010 editions.

I purchased Office 2007 through the Student Select program; am I eligible for the Tech Guarantee?

No - Office 2007 product that is purchased through the Student Select program is not eligible for the Tech Guarantee.


Ah well, the 2010 edition will probably be around £40 when it's out on the student program anyway. Hopefully...

LOL - and I thought when you said "student version" you meant "Office Home and Student". My apologies.
