OK, this is not exactly photography related. But, it is a chance to try the next generation of Microsoft Office 2010 for almost one year. If you want to see how this software is evolving, point your browser to:
and download a copy for your computer. It requires the creation of an account if you do not have a Hotmail or Live.com ID. It installs fairly quickly on a broadband connection and the applications seem to be snappier, loading to the usable state quickly. My first impression is that although I still do not like the “Ribbon” interface, MS Office 2010 seems to have refined the idea a bit more. The overall look and feel of the modules are lighter, airier, and this time around Outlook gets the “Ribbon” too.
