10 cool features to look forward to in Office 2010

Office button options

Office 2007 users are familiar with the Office button, the big round button in the upper-left corner of Office applications, from which you can select a variety of tasks and options. The Office button in Office 2010 has a new look, and it's been added to Outlook and OneNote, which didn't have it before. This is what you see when you click the Office button (now implemented as a Ribbon tab) in Word 2010.

Meager additions at best...will be hard to justify upgrading at all, let alone many machines....hopefully, Office 2010 has much more to offer...

is still a waste of screen space. And hiding it is still worse. Things popping in and out of view is annoying at best, and startling most of the time. I've been using and teaching Office 07 for four semesters. That ribbon still stinks. To put it politely.

It only took a decade for Office to evolve to where I might want to spend the money to change. Windows 7 and Office 2010 might be my ticket in 2010.
