Pros: Compatibility with previous versions. Excel is better.
Cons: office 2010 is just plain clunky compared to 2007. The ribbon does not work correctly and correction of the issue is buried. Outlook's architecture with it's. pst file system is archaic. It does not integrate into project data base systems and does not integrate well into MS Exchange Server either. Inexcusable.
Pros: Every computer in my college has it. It is relatively familiar to older versions.
Cons: If you took a Microsoft class before, get ready to take another just to understand everything about Office 10. I miss being able to quickly find what I need. It used to be as simple as opening a tab and looking down a list in organized order. Now, I have to click on misleading icons, some of which are hidden. It never took me so long to just find the spell check button. Thank Goodness for shortcut keys.
Office 2010 the file is currently in use try again later

Summary: I am completely dissapointed that MS released an Office product that cant SAVE files properly?, Please Google the error many users are reporting in the above quotation. I continually receive the error in Word and Excel on a clean install of Win7 and Office 2010 on 3 of my machines. Of course MS technical support is blaming everybody but themselves.
Pros: Its MS Office nothing much else compares "If it worked as it should on the most basic level"
Cons: "Office 2010 the file is currently in use try again later"
