Windows 7: How is Microsoft planning to hawk Office 2010?

How is Microsoft planning to hawk Office 2010?

The most frequent question I’ve been getting for the past year-plus regarding Office 2010 is whether it’s worth an upgrade. Is there anything in Microsoft’s soon-to-be-released office suite that Office XP, Office 2003 and/or Office 2007 users of the suite might find “compelling”? Will any of Office 2010’s features put a dent in Google Docs’ momentum among the home, student and SMB set?

Because Office users are such a varied bunch, it’s hard to answer that question in a succinct blog post. But a Microsoft partner shared with me a list of what Microsoft considers to be Office 2010’s top 10 features. If you want to know how Microsoft plans to hawk its Office 2010 suite to end users, here’s the “elevator pitch”:

Top 10 reasons for End Users to try Microsoft Office 2010

1. Edit and enhance photos in Word or PowerPoint 2010.
Put more visual impact in your documents or presentations with easy-to-use photo-editing tools that let
you crop, control brightness and contrast, sharpen or soften, and add artistic visual effects without leaving Word 2010 or PowerPoint 2010.

2. Put your presentation message in motion with PowerPoint 2010.
Edit videos right in PowerPoint 2010, breaking longer clips down into shorter segments or reducing file size to make your presentation portable. Then dial up the visual impact by adjusting color, adding new video effects, and incorporating new dynamic slide transitions and animations.

And they even left out the one option I find very attractive - to be able to save a PP picture show as a video.
