Office 2010: An Upgrade Without an Upgrade
Loyal Redmond customers are used to getting a deal when a new version of their favorite software arrives. But Office users are out of luck this go 'round as there are no upgrades for Office 2010. Microsoft claims it killed the upgrade to simplify its lineup.
Simpler it is, cheaper it's not. This is a risky strategy. I've interviewed nearly a dozen Redmond Report readers who are beta testing Office 2010. You generally like the new rev a lot, but I don't think I've come across anyone who's truly blown away. And you have to be plenty impressed to shell out at full price!
