Excerpt: Microsoft Office 2010 launches three years after its predecessor, the 2007 edition, blew us away completely. That edition caused pretty massive upheaval with its brand-new Ribbon interface which turned our perceptions of the productivity suite completely on their heads.
Summary: Verdict: If you’re using Office 2003 or an older version of Office, the newer 2010 suite is a worthwhile upgrade. If you’re a happy Office 2007 user however, Office 2010 doesn’t really offer a massive upgrade, with the exception of Outlook.
Pros: Interface is yet more refined and easier to use, Outlook’s new ‘Conversation View’ is brilliant, stable.
Cons: Still an expensive buy, ‘Web Apps’ seems to require a fast Internet connection, loads of features you may never use but are still paying for.
