10 Reasons to Try Office 2010

Quote:

Office 2010 is now available for purchase worldwide, having hit the store shelves both in traditional retail outlets and in online shops on June 15th, 2010, two months after the productivity suite was released to manufacturing. Released in Beta in November 2009, Build 14.0.4536.1000 went on to be downloaded in excess of nine million times over the course of the five months that separated the first public testing milestone from the final stage of the development process. In terms of Beta size, judging by the sheer number of downloads, Office 2010 outperformed the testing program built for what went on to become the world’s fastest selling operating system. Windows 7 Beta downloads stopped at the eight-million mark, according to Microsoft.

Concomitantly with the general availability of Office 2010, Microsoft also gave the green light to free trial downloads of the finalized version of Office 2007’s successor. There are no less than three SKUs available for download, namely Office Home and Business 2010, Office Home and Student 2010 and Office Professional 2010. If you were to ask me, I would recommend you tried Office Professional 2010 out of all the free trial editions available for download, as it is the complete variant of the product available at retail, with an impressive array of components including: Word 2010, Excel 2010, Outlook 2010, PowerPoint 2010, OneNote 2010, Access 2010 and Publisher 2010.

My mom's laptop came with it preinstalled. I already have the full version of office, but I decided to see what all the ruckus was about. So when I clicked it, it gave me the option to purchase it, enter a code if I had one, or use "Starter Edition". It specifically said that Starter Edition is not a trial, but ad-supported versions of Word and Excel 2010. I chose that and everything loaded fine. I didn't see any ads while I was using it, other than a square Office 2010 banner (non-intrusive) in bottom right of the screen. Still though, Word and Excel are not enough. Just stick to 2007. The only thing I liked was the removal of the ribbon button. Everything has its own tab now.

I like it much more than Office 2007. It just seems easier to use.

LOL @ the last comment.

But seriously, I think 2010 is better than 2007 (tried the '10 beta and own '07). I prefer OpenOffice.org, but I can understand why some people like Office, and that's fine by me. The only reason I use Office is for the '07 formats that NC State requires...
