Office 2010 has been launched and is available as a trial download. I like the fact that it looks like Office 2007 (so no major upgrade path) but it contains several excellent new features.
I have been reviewing the Beta version for a few months so you’ll find some Posts if you select the Category “Microsoft Office 2010” on this Blog.
