A Sneak Peak at Office 2010

I just finished installing Office 2010 a few minutes ago and thought I'd share some screenshots. The look and feel is very similar to Office 2007, so there won't be as much of a learning curve to step up to for those of you who are already used to 2007. Also, it doesn't look like the ribbon (which I kind of like) is going away any time soon.

Honestly, I don't like the graphics in Office 2010 at all. I think it's pretty hideous and the black layout is even worse. Hopefully, this will get addressed by the time Office 2010 is released to the public.

Click on one of the thumbnails for a full sized image. Note: All screenshots are using the included black color scheme.

Here's a screenshot of Word 2007 to compare with the Office 2010 images.

And, here are the screenshots of some of the software in the Office 2010 suite.
