Purchase Microsoft Office 2010 cheap

Microsoft Office is not just the market leader, it's the one product that nearly every user has on their PC. Not content with that situation, however, Microsoft continues to develop the product, with MS Office 2010 the latest implementation of its number one desktop best seller.

It's being updated furiously, but Microsoft's once-irreplaceable program now has some viable rivals from the likes of Google Docs, OpenOffice and Zoho. Is it still and essential program for office workers, or an over bloated dinosaur not worth the return on investment?

It seems a little disingenuous to try and explain what Office 2010 is all about, largely because anyone who's ever used a PC will have come across it at some time or other.

That said it's worth just re-capping on what the Microsoft suite contains.

A number of editions of Office are available, made up of different components but with Word for word processing and Excel for spreadsheets in every one. Some will then also include PowerPoint for presentations, Publisher for desktop publishing and Access to build and run databases. Outlook, Microsoft's popular e-mail and collaboration client is included in the business packages and, as of this release, OneNote, a kind of electronic notebook, is another common component.

Because it provides the most basic and widely used of desktop applications, the Office suite is used by everyone from students and home users up to large enterprise corporations. Of course there are alternatives, including open source OpenOffice.org (available for free), but the Microsoft product is very much the market leader and most commercial rivals have long since fallen by the wayside.

It's worth noting that this new implementation isn't as radical an update as the previous Office 2007 version.

Yes there are lots of new features and functionality but as far as the user interface and basic ways of working are concerned it remains much the same, albeit with a number of tweaks to make the component apps easier to use. In particular the ribbon interface introduced in Office 2007 is now much more consistent and can It's worth noting that this new implementation isn't as radical an update as the previous Office 2007 version.

In particular the ribbon interface introduced in Office 2007 is now much more consistent and can also be customised to make commonly used tools more readily accessible.

There's also a new Backstage view, implemented in all the apps and accessed by clicking the tab marked ‘file'. This gathers together a variety of management options to, for example save, print and share documents, options previously scattered across the different views and, as a result, hard to find.

Another major innovation is a hosted implementation of Office in the form of Office Web Apps. Like Google Docs and Zoho, Office Web Apps delivers document editing tools via a Web browser—in Microsoft's case in the form of cut-down implementations of its desktop office apps. Anyone can sign up and use Web Apps to create and share documents online, and do so for free, via the Microsoft SkyDrive online storage service. However, for maximum functionality a copy of Office 2010 is needed on the desktop used.
