Microsoft Office 2010 announced todaySummer is traditionally not a good season for the software business. Sunny days lure people away from computers - including developers, bloggers and tech geeks in general - which means there isn't much news about software and technology. Maybe this is why Microsoft decided to introduce the all new Office 2010 just today, in the company's Worldwide Partners Conference, so they could get everyone's attention.

Microsoft Office 2010 is meant to represent quite a revolution in comparison to previous versions of Office. While still keeping the same ribbon-style interface, some Office applications will feature important improvements, such as the possibility for multiple users to to edit a document in Word 2010 simultaneously, enhanced photo editing tools and new transitions for PowerPoint 2010, and the much awaited improved search function in Outlook 2010 (I'm particularly looking forward to this one).

However the most important new feature in Microsoft Office 2010 will undoubtedly be the new online versions of Word,  PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote. After a few years of delay, it seems that Microsoft have finally decided to launch their own alternative to Zoho,Google Docs, OpenGoo, ThinkFree and many other online productivity suites. The online Office 2010 will probably be a light version of the suite, but it will enable you to work anytime, anywhere.

We'll surely learn a lot more about Microsoft Office 2010 in the next few days. Meanwhile, you can take a look at the videos (published on the Microsoft website by mistake, and now kindly hosted by istartedsomething), check out the detailed guide written by Leena Rao at TechCrunch and subscribe to the Microsoft Technical Preview waiting list which, with a bit of luck, might grant you access to a pre-release version of Office 2010.

    I really don't like the new ribbon interface. Microsoft is shooting themselfs in the foot over this new creation.

    I still prefer free alternative office suites. There is no reason anymore to pay for an office suite these days. They have all the functionality that any general user may need.

    And to make things even better for alternative office suites is that they have not converted their interfaces to a ribbon mess.

    I tend to favour SSuite Office's free office suites. They have a whole range of office suites that are free for download, and their interfaces are no more than 3 levels deep. So you don't need to hunt for that elusive function you need.

    Their software also don't need to run on Java or .NET, so it makes the software very small and efficient.
