Microsoft Office 2010

Finally after we received the Announcement on Public Disclosure

The Office 2010 clients have been publicly disclosed and are not under a confidentiality obligation.  You are free to talk about the Office 2010 client build as you wish.

Please remember that the builds you have received are for your use only. Please do not share these builds.

… I felt relief that finally after months of in wrap, finally we can talk about it to the public. We’ve been like debating about Non-Disclosure Agreement for weeks… lol… Here it is Office 2010:

 

What you will notice upon starting up is that, the splash window is animated. Actually in a quick glance, there was not really much change. If you are familiar with Office 2007, you won’t have any problem with Office 2010.

However upon inspecting it, there are few features removed from Office 2007. These changes mostly in Outlook. More interesting features it Backstage, which allows you to change the info of that document, e.g. permission etc.

Visualization also improve in Office 2010, so you can you cool visual effect effortlessly.

Few more stuff to come is accessing you work across different devices and platform; say laptop, desktop, smartphones, and web browser. Plus all the free stuff you will get. Everything still under wrap… so just wait and see. We still a bit scare to tell much about it until there is this big green light from Microsoft.

To conclude here are the main stuff in Office 2010:

  • Improve Licensing and Volume Activation
  • 64bit supported natively
  • Application Virtualization – for enterprise App-V 4.5 is required
  • There are huge improvement in Security Changes, which got new controls provide countermeasures for hardening and reducing the attack surface and mitigating exploits
  • Office Customization Tool which can be use for the installation
