    Lightbulb Leaked: Office 2010 Technical Preview screenshots

    Earlier this week we learned that Microsoft would be giving out the Office 2010 Technical Preview to select testers on an invite-only basis. In January, screenshots of the alpha (then still codenamed Office 14) were leaked a week after select testers got them. This time, testers don't even have the Technical Preview yet, but new screenshots have already arrived (see below). Office 2010 will be available in 32-bit and 64-bit, and both flavors have been leaked.
    It looks as though the next version of Office will look simmilar to 2007 but with a more unified experience due to Publisher finally getting the ribbon UI. There is also a new app called Sharepoint workspace.

    I've quite taken to Office 2007 now, but the 2010 version sure does look nice!

    Yeah i agree setup and menus are very identical, which should make it easier for staff/students to switch. as at the moment it is pretty difficult to make the jump as 2003/2007 look totally different.

    I love the way Outlook is coming on. I certainly look of Word too, even down to the shading behind the page. It's nice to see them putting a bit of sparkle into their office package, they added some with 2007 but it never felt like it was really there, 2010 seems to have done it. I've been using 2007 for a while and I find it very easy to use and very productive, the ribbon, once you're used to it is a real time saver

    Really can't get on with Office 2007. Suppose I should get used to it then if Office 2010 is on the way.

    Looks good and finally Visio benefits from the ribbon interface.

    I made the mistake of upgrading my laptop to 2007 right before I was due to write my dissertation. Once you get the hang of it though it is actually pretty decent.

    I do not like the new office it brash and in your face (chaved up) you can't even download skins to change the feel. It also a training nightmare the trasition between most verstion of world has been progressive not a jump this jump is like going from wordstar to word!!

    2007 is required if you are to full use a MOSS stratergy.


    arHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

    Our archaic staff had no problem, apart from one solitary teacher, adapting and picking up 2007 with the minimal of training.

    I hope they've kept the ability to change the colour of the UI. The black looks fantastic imo.
