Better than its successors unless you prefer to rent your software.
10 June 2013
Summary: This software is OK. Owning MS Office 2010 is much better than renting the software (MS Office 2013 or newer). If you do not like those alternatives this is the last option for you from Microsoft. Office is still not substantially better than it was 10 years ago, but it is incrementally better. If you want this version get it while you can, Microsoft is doing what they can to do away with it.
Summary: I have used the Office products for many years with great satisfaction. I purchased a new computer for my home and Office was not included with the sell so I immediately started my search for the right Office product for my needs at both home and work. I would highly recommend Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010.
Summary: No need to describe this product, if you want it -- you already know what it is. But if you want to save a ton of money on it, purchase it online for store pick-up. If you simply walk into the store to outright purchase it there, it will cost you almost 90 dollars more! The online price through Walmart is possibly the best price you will find for Microsoft Office Home and Business software (disc included).
Summary: My older Microsoft Office (Business Edition) was 2002. Wow! this one has tons more stuff on it. More tabs, more groups, more secret squares, and lots more fun. You will be plesently suprised. My son has a Macintosh and I'm buying him the Microsoft Office Student Edition. This program has come a long way since 2002, I will make it a point to upgrade every year. I can not beleive I have gone this long without it. I won't go this long without an upgrade again.
Summary: I've only had 2010 for a few weeks but all in all Office 2010 seems to be a relatively decent product and fairly reliable/stable... Simply put, a technical improvement over 2007. Given the new way it's bundled, it can turn out to be more expensive to acquire than 2007 was unless all you want to do is upgrade from a previous office product.
Summary: As far as the price goes, I am very happy with the Walmart price. The program however is lacking what I thought it should have. When I updated a computer with an older version it messed it all up and the layout for the new Word is so different and to my way of thinking not user friendly.
