    Well, I'm very impressed so far with it, it's like 2007 should have been if they had not been concentrating so hard on the ribbon.
    So are you planning to deploy it yet, or are you still awaiting educational pricing?

    It will be at least a year before we even consider rolling it, because we have that much left of our ECDL course still to run and it's not fair on the candidates to switch in the middle of it. (aside from the fact that Litmus don't support it yet either.)

    We are hoping to trial Office 2010 on a small number of machines starting from half term (next week). Assuming things go well (and it plays with SIMS) it will be deployed site-wide for September 2010.

    Finished the last machine last week, and we're now Office 2010 site-wide (135 workstations).

    Just as we've gotten staff used to the Office Button in 2007! I installed it at home yesterday. Saved a PowerPoint as a wmv file, though it took for ever. Seems to take a time to load as well, but I haven't had too much time to play as yet.

    We've just had the disks arrive and I'm to include it into the new image for the ICT Suite which I'm to sort out one I have this darn linux box working (trying to install linux on raid and fast giving up!)

    I like the look of it so far though, I have it install on one of my VMs and like DOS said, it's all 2007 should of been. It has the sensible menu names back and not a big "LOOK MICROSOFT MADE ME" logo up in the top left for a File Menu ..

    Already got it on all admin machines going site wide when I get the time to push the image. Works great and everyone seems to love it.

    Problems however are evident in its printing abilities of certain documents to certain filthy Toshiba copiers whos drivers make single page excel docs into 127 pages. This also happens with some Cannon printers but all other printers are fine. Does anyone know how to report a bug to MS about it as 2007 managed fine?

    We are currently working around the issue with other printers and looking at replacing the copier with anything but a Toshiba.

    Seems all the right-click functionality is broken...

    Office can create PDF's nativley.

    I don't think there is any need for acrobat pro any more.

    Im trying to stop the gosip of Office2010, noone here knows of its existance since I banned all sites that mention it.
    If anyone mentions it i think I will casually say "oh, is it out yet?" and pretend office 2007 is the latest version before rushing home.
