    I want them to hurry on and out the themes in. I want my awesome black interface lol. I do like how everything uses the ribbon now, for consistency.

    Have any of you managed to use the new Academic add-ins yet?

    They look good but as I only have it installed on a standalone test machine I haven't been able to see how Powerpoint and OneNote work together if you choose to 'Broadcast a lesson'.

    Yeah, i've been pretty impressed with Office 2010 on my Windows 7 test machine.

    Don't think we will be upgrading to it from Office 2007 in the too distant future, it just depends if the teachers start to annoy us when its released and I may give them something else to complain about!

    I'll do it as soon as I get the chance, we had complaints that people were not upgraded fast enough!

    Is this going to be yet another version of Office in which only about 0.0000001% of the features will actually be used ?
    People will still the comic sans font for everything, people will still use Word to try and create something that should be done in Publisher & Photoshop & people will still create huge Excel files which stuff that should be done in Access or a proper database.
    I will no doubt be asked to install it - which will be a complete waste of time, effort & energy. /Rant over

    I would say its normally people using publisher when there is no need, making huge files all over the place. We had someone draw scoresheet tables in publisher yesterday, surely excel would have been easier.....
