Lovers of barely functional, bloated and outdated software rejoice: Microsoft Office 2010 has been released to manufacturing and could be available as early as May 1st!
The neolithic software title lumbers onwards, regardless of technological advancement and shifts towards cloud computing.
So what does Microsoft have in store for users so behind the curve that Office is still a great choice? Well, they continue to dazzle us with ‘The Ribbon”, their confusing and bloated UI trainwreck. The Ribbon becomes more controllable in 2010, which should add to the amount of time and effort required to configure before using.
Another time saver is automated screenshot capture, for those who don’t know where the ‘print screen’ button is. Powerpoint gets slightly better graphics and video import functionality.
Otherwise, this yawn-worthy release is really only for large organizations that won’t consider investing in a move towards cheaper, more modern solutions.
