Office Professional Plus 2010 RTM Available Via TechNet/MSDN

Yes, we are a bit behind on things. We have been _that_ busy lately.


Office Pro Plus 2010 is available in both 64bit and 32bit flavours on the TechNet and MSDN download sites for subscribers.

We have our 64bit version coming down now with the 32bit version to follow later.

It will be interesting to see what bugs we encountered that were addressed and those that were not.

All in all, Office 2010 is a big step in the right direction for productivity here in our shop.

The Word 2010 Navigation Pane is awesome for jumping around our client audits to get to certain pieces of info quickly. When we open the same document in Word 2007 we end up taking a bit more time to either jump down by page or search.

The changes to the ribbon seemingly take what was really good about the Office 2003 GUI and blended it into the Office 2007/2010 ribbon structures. We like the changes there.

We _really_ appreciate the ability to get more than one Exchange account into Outlook 2010. That feature request has been around for _a long_ time!

Congratulations to the Office Team for what looks to be a great product version! Good job folks!

Now to figure out how to tweak our Group Policy scripts to look for both 64bit and 32bit versions when delivering Office via GP settings!
