Microsoft is ready with its new product. The product this time is its new Office suit 2010. Its coming after 3 years as the last suit was launched in year 2007 and it was the best selling office 2007. Office 2007 has given a completely new dimension to the interface of office applications. This new feature has replaced the old and classical menu based interface with the new ribbon based interface. These ribbons have really proved themselves and have been liked by majority of the users. This new interface displays the items and buttons of the same category in front on the screen all the times. You do not need to search for options in the small over crowded toolboxes or in the tree type menu bars; every thing is readily available for you right on your screen. In Office 2010 Microsoft has continued the same ribbon style interface and has added a lot in the feature section. If we talk about the new Microsoft Outlook 2010 then now it is capable in keeping you connected with the social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Office Excel and Office word is integrated with online Office and so you if you want you can get your data and files available any where on any computer. This was just the tip of the iceberg and a lot more is inside the new suit 2010.
Just like the previous versions of Office the new version also comes in various editions and you can choose the one which best suits your work type and budget. The Home and Student Edition includes Office Word, Office Excel, Office PowerPoint and Office OneNote. The Home and Business edition includes Office Word, Office Excel, Office PowerPoint, Office OneNote and Office Outlook. And finally the third edition which is Office Professional includes everything in it. It has Office Word, Office Excel, Office PowerPoint, Office OneNote, Office Outlook, Office Access, and Office Publisher in it. You can select the edition that you want and the prices as of now are $149.99, $279.99 and $499.99 for Home and Student, Home and Business, and Professional respectively
To get your copy of this new Office suite go to http://www.microsoft.com/office/2010/en/default.aspx and get your copy. You can click on New copy or Upgrade copy and do the purchasing right from there. After downloading the file you can install it by double clicking the downloaded file which starts with the extraction of files and then initiates the Installer. Installation is very simple and just like any other product but it would be wise to install it in separate directory than the one in which you already have your existing version of Office. This good because 2010 is new software and it will take a little time for you to get used to it so it is good to keep both of them installed on your machine for some time and later you can remove the previous version. Microsoft has really put in lots of efforts in developing this new version and using this product would again be fun just like always.
