Office 2010 Dealios Have Strict Time Limit

Microsoft is offering current Open Value customers Office 2010 for half off -- but you better move fast -- this deal is only good through June. And the 50 percent discount is only for Office 2003 and 2007 customers. Older versions are simply too ancient to qualify.

I'm not sure if IT can decide about this migration by July. Let's face it. Office 2010 hasn't even shipped. All your testing on macro, hardware and application compatibility are based on unfinished software.

I hear great things about Office 2010 (as long as you are a ribbon fan) and even wrote a cover story with your help.

But as good as 2010 sounds, it's the little things that take lots of testing that'll get ya.

What do you think? Are you moving to Office 2010, sticking with the old, or do you have an alternative productivity suite? You tell me at [email protected]

By the way, the much talked about Office 2010 (there really are no Office 2010 secrets) will be announced today. This is like Obama announcing the pick of Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. If we all already know what you're going to say, how is that an announcement?
