3.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade unfriendly indeed! 6 Oct. 2010
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I fully concur with the other Reviews complaining about the unfriendly nature of the upgrade procedure and I consider myself reasonably computer literate having built several over the last few years. If you have Outlook installed already and you don't want it screwed up, then you must do a custom install and you MUST untick the option of installing a trial version of Office 10 (which is in the small print at the bottom of the options page). Microsoft - you could do better! The Office suite is similar to Office 2007 once you get it installed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable step up from Office 2007 26 April 2011
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I have been using Microsoft Office for about 25 years, and have used just about every version. My special area of interest is Microsoft Word, which I have written with and programmed professionally for a living for most of that time.

If you have used Office 2007, the look of Office 2010 applications will be familiar. The most obvious change is that the Office button has gone, replaced by a new File tab just left of the Home tab. The File tab is where you'll find many document-related features, such as information (properties), recent files list, new document creation, sharing, help, and of course printing. All these features have been improved, though none more than the print feature, which has had a major overhaul. It is now easier to use. Its new layout has plenty of space to explain options, and it offers one of the best print-previews I have ever seen outside a professional DTP package.

The ribbon may now be customized. This takes a bit of fiddling, but it is quite easy if you take a moment to watch one of the tutorials on Microsoft's website. This enables you to add any command you like to the ribbon, including macros.

Some of the new text effects in Word are cool-looking but not especially useful to commercial authors. For example, reflections under headings look nice, but nobody would seriously entertain using them in a business presentation or a user guide. However, they do offer some fun design options for informal documents.
PDF-making is now built-in. It used to be available only as a free download (due to a spat between Microsoft and Adobe). The PDFs it makes are acceptable but lack the quality and features of Adobe PDF offerings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take care installing Office Home & Student 2010 19 Jun. 2010
Format:DVD-ROM|Verified Purchase
If you are already running an earlier version of Office, be careful when installing MS Office Home & Student 2010 and read all the information on the installation dialog boxes. I was already running Office Professional 2007 and wanted to install Office H&S 2010, to run alongside it, not as an upgrade that overwrites the existing programs.
It takes quite a long time to install what, on the face of it, is 4 programs, but in reality is all the programs in Office Professional 2010. The additional programs are trial versions which you can convert to full versions by buying the appropriate overpriced Product Key. The problem is that you cannot have two Microsoft Outlooks running together and I found that my Outlook 2007 had been replaced by a trial version of Outlook 2010 which, if I had kept it, I would have had to pay for at the end of the trial period. I did a System Restore to get rid of Office H&S 2010 and re-installed it. This second time, I noticed that the Customize dialog box has 4 tabs and, although on the first tab you can select to keep previous versions of Office, you need to go to the second tab to instruct it not to install Outlook 2010 and any other of the trial programs you don't want.
Why is it that so many things these days have a catch? I can find no information on the packaging or in the Quick Start leaflet in the box that the entire Office Professional 2010 suite would be installed.
I haven't yet had time to make a full comparison of Excel, Word and PowerPoint 2010 v 2007 (I'm not interested in OneNote) but initial impressions are that the tweaks are minor and that, if you're happy with Office 2007, you probably don't need to waste your cash on Office 2010.

4.0 out of 5 stars sufficient for most 10 July 2010
I have always had the professional office suite but recently migrated to the reduced home version. as far as Word and Excel are concerned have no problems with the function or user interface
. You may have to store your existing files under a different name once you have opened them in 2010 to get a change of file type. It depends on what version of office you are migrating from but this is no hardship.

However be very careful with the installation I accidentally loaded the trial of the full version (professional) and had a troublesome period backing it out.

I bought Office 2010 Home and Student edition as a partial upgrade for the full Office 2007. As Outlook is over spec-ed and overpriced for the average Joe (i.e. me) I decided not to bother with the 2010 Outlook upgrade which is not included with this cheaper version. Fair enough, you might think - but you'd be wrong.

The default install option for Office 2010 Home and Student assumes you want to upgrade the WHOLE package. Mr Ballmer, if I'd wanted the full package I would have BOUGHT the full package. The end result, on the first attempt, is that - as you'd expect - Word, Excel and PowerPoint are upgraded to the new versions. Very disquietingly though, Outlook 2007 is removed and you are, very generously (not!), offered a "free" 30-day trial of Outlook 2010.

Now, imagine, though you probably don't have to, how important most people's e-mail software is to them: work, photos, silly attachments, love letters, whatever. Now imagine how ****ing furious you would be to discover that nice friendly Microsoft has removed this for you without even asking or so much as hinting! OK, OK not gone for good, maybe, but I have used PCs since the days of MS-DOS and although I was never a whizz, I know my way around. I also know the stomach-churning "Oh ****, I've accidentally erased the contents of my hard drive" feeling and momentarily, this Office installation software gives you that same sensation. I can only presume the intention is to make you feel like an inferior being for not having purchased the full upgrade.

Anyway, I had to go back to square one and, for the first time in my life EVER, run a custom install. Easy enough - you might think but even that's not straightforward.
