Microsoft Office 2010: First Look
Microsoft’s Office 2010 was “conveniently” leaked to the internet and now all the major IT blogs are reporting on it. According to InfoWorld, “sporting mostly incremental improvements, Office 2010 serves to bridge the gap between the Vista and Windows 7 eras by streamlining the product’s controversial Ribbon-based user interface and extending it to encompass the full range of Office applications.”
There are several new aesthetic features with Office 2010 but one of the biggest “under the hood” differences is “each Office application now sports a customized, window-spanning alternative view that combines information about the currently selected object (document, spreadsheet, e-mail message) with various actions and application-level configuration options.”
For the first time, Microsoft is offering a 64-bit Microsoft Office which will allow a lot more power for those Office power users.
