It is a little bit more than six months until Microsoft releases the next version of their popular Office suite, Office 2010. Interested users have already the chance to test a beta version of Microsoft Office 2010 which has been available for some time now.
As is the case with new releases, things are different to before, and it will take time getting adjustments to changed features, and new features that are introduced in Office 2010.
Microsoft has released a free e-book a few days ago to further promote the upcoming release of Microsoft Office 2010, and provide users from around the world with a solid overview of some of the new features and changes that the company implemented into Office 2010.
The e-book is divided into three parts. Part I, “Envision the Possibilities,” walks the reader through the changes in Office 2010 while part 2, “Hit the Ground Running,” focuses on the individual applications and part 3, “Next Steps with Office 2010,” provides interoperability examples.
The ebook begins with an introduction of "what's in Microsoft Office 2010". This includes an overview of the various editions that Office 2010 will be offered as, and the programs each edition includes.
This is followed by the system requirements, and the following main parts:
Envision the Possibilities
Hit the Ground Running
Next Steps with Office 2010
The e-book offers 183 pages of information about Microsoft Office 2010.
Even better is the fact that Microsoft is offering that e-book to anyone without prerequisites like registrations. It is freely and publicly available on the Windows Live Skydrive hosting service
