What's New in Microsoft Office 2010?
Some of the changes are unsurprising: integration with Windows 7's new task bar; support for jump lists; and porting the ribbon interface to Outlook. Others are unexpected but welcome enhancements that make 2010 a worthy upgrade from the drastic face-lift of Office 2007. The improved "file" menu puts common actions up front and all but eliminates submenus, while paste preview offers live previews as well as a pop-up menu of pasting and formatting options. The updated software also includes improved online sharing features and adjustments aimed at power users.

Of course, you can always get your own hands-on time, too, by heading over to Microsoft and downloading the beta of Office 2010. For now, it's free to download, but it will expire, at which point you'll have to pony up for a proper commercial version. [From: Lifehacker]
