Technical Preview Office 2010

It is very interesting to hear all the talk about things in this forum. I was just sent an invitation for the Technical preview of Office 2010. I am running 64 bit Windows 7 RC on a HP dv5-1125nr 4G of ram and 250 G Hd. Prior to downloading the Technical Preview I read the newsgroups that are associated with it. I was thinking of installing 64 bit Office 2010 but found out that it is not compatible with some of 32 bit add-ons for other programs in the Suite. I also had Office 2007 Professional installed when I converted. I installed Business Contact Manager and Visio at the same time. Everything installed perfectly and the programs are very interesting. There is a lot to know here but I thought if people were considering the upgrade, a report of a successful installation might be encouraging. God's Speed I think I like what I see so far! Patrick C

The 2010 Technical Preview has a few new features that were not in 2007. Word graphics capabilities have been enhanced significantly. The HUGE problem that I have with 2007 AND 2010 is the #$%^&* ribbon. I bought a copy of 2007 and took a couple of online classes to learn how it works and fretted with it for several months before scrapping it and reinstalling 2003. The ribbon can be hidden, giving back some desktop space, but it is just so inefficient requiring 3 to 5 mouse clicks to do what can be done in 2003 with 1 or 2 mouse clicks. It is also much less intuitive than past editions. 2010 has done little to fix this.

The use of the ribbon has even been expanded to Publisher and Vizio. YUCK!

i'm still waiting to see if I've been accepted my m$ to preview 2010 (I doubt it after having waited the last week or so since I applied) I'm keen to try it. I rely heavily on Outlook and One Note both at work and at home. Apart from the fact that Outlook finally displays all day events in the to-do bar, any other significant changes you have noticed?

Hi

My invitation took about 4 weeks so who knows ,

as for the changes in the two applications you mention the biggest is of course the integration of the ribbon which will be either a good or a bad thing dependent on your feelings on the matter.

have not had time to really play with the apps yet, (I don't run them in a production environment ), so have to find a quite time to grab some sample data and load it .

One thing I have noticed is that Outlook finally places it's .PST into your personal documents folder which is so much better for continuity and means I don't have to jump through hoops to work with my data structure.

Will try to post more impressions as I find them

Do you (or anyone else) know if the TP has a drop dead date?

HI all

Why this ribbon causes so much problems I can't understand.

A little bit of "RTFM" and you'll see on Office 2007 (and 2010) pressing CTRL+F1 gets rid of it on all the office apps.

To re-instate it just press CTRL+F1 again.

Seems a silly thing to go back a few releases just because of a feature that you can quite easily turn on and off.

Cheers
jimbo
