Tech SoupReview of Office 2010

Nice summary from TechSoup of Microsoft Office 2010, and enhancements from the 2007 edition. The one line that really caught my eye.

There are six versions of Office 2010: Starter, Home and Student, Home and Business, Standard, Professional, and Professional Plus.

I haven’t got the time to do the math, but consider the variables…
6 versions of Office 2010
2 versions of Office Web Apps (personal and enterprise)
2 or more versions of SharePoint
2 versions of Word files… doc. and .docX
Employees working with previous versions of Word and Office 2007, and Office 2003
Updates for all the different versions.

equals =

Support nightmare.

It really shouldn’t have to be this difficult or complex.
