    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    I personally think it is a big difference of nite and day between 2007 and 2010 "Again depends on what your purpose is" and I bought
    Microsoft Office 2010 Professional at rockbottomsoftware.com for $199.99 so I won both ways, excellent price and a great product!

    Cons

    None all positive for me!

    Summary

    Big difference again between Ms Office 2007 to Ms Office 2010 professional at the price of $199.99 http://www.rockbottomsoftware.com

    "I liked this version of MS office"

    March 8, 2013  |   By love2dl123

    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    I just bought this software from workbycomputer.com for like $85 dollars. I think I like microsoft office 2010 better than 2003 or 2007. I like buying my software from workbycomputer.com because it is instant download and they are helpful if your not for sure what to do. No waiting on the postal/carrier companies for you product and your product is available to you whenever you want.

    Cons

    none I think it keeps getting better

    "None of the components will run."

    January 15, 2013  |   By sfbean

    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    There may be some pros, but I wouldn't know because the program won't run!

    Cons

    I get an error message: "this application has failed to start because it's side by side configuration is incorrect".
    This is very irritating in that not only will the program that I paid good money for not run, but the error message is unintelligible to me (and I suspect to most users).

    Summary

    Worst software purchase ever. I have bought software that hasn't worked before, but never such an expensive suite from a supposedly reputable company.

    "Good for young people"

    December 9, 2012  |   By Doogleman

    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    the ribbon and nice design

    Cons

    ...Not much

    Summary

    For all those saying its too complicated, they are just too old to figure things out. the design is great, and if you're able to do a bit of figuring things out, MS 2010 is great

    "Little (or dubious) value for money"

    September 1, 2012  |   By Batavia1629

    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    a) when upgrading from a previous MS office version:
    - very little to nothing

    b) when using MS office for the first time:
    - seamlessly and intuitive in comparison other others office packages
    - overall a good office package

    Cons

    a) when upgrading from a previous MS office version:
    - pay quite some money for new look and feel but little functional change/improvement
    - substantial increase of the overall costs in comparison to the previous MS Office environments, due to:
    + the separate billing for Outlook now (previous part of MS Office)
    + and for example for the individual billing
    of every additional language package. (till MS Office 2003
    you got for the same price -all- language packages at once:
    search for MS Proofing tools)
    - backward compatibility to previous MS Office versions missing, therefore no seamlessly change for long-time users possible. (for example is the missing of a look and feel like MS Office 2003 a deficit)

    b) when using MS office for the first time:
    - the additional benefit of value for this much money in comparison to other Office packages and especial free Office packages is dubious

    Summary

    In comparison to Microsoft's company size, capabilities and the experience and knowledge they company should have obtained over the many years with MS Office, is MS Office 2010 a disappointing follow-up result.

    Nevertheless it has also to be admitted, that this product compared to other major Office packages(CNET lacks these comparisons) like Corel's Office, Lotus, Open Office, Libre Office, online Office solutions, etc., that is in most cases still the better product.

    But if then its price is additionally taken into account and compared with the other office packages becomes this functional advantage arguable.

    The additional price paid for this functional advantage is very high.

    Perhaps disproportional or perhaps not, as this is what its costs to achieve this additional functional advantage, or perhaps is this price driven by dependency of the world for this product.

    Anyway Microsoft invests also much effort after a release of a MS Office package, by all the updates that follow-up etc. to maintain and assure a continuous good working product. And perhaps is this higher price for MS Office then again justified.

    "MS Office getting to difficult."

    August 7, 2012  |   By twoarrow

    Version: Microsoft Office 2010 14.0.6009.1000

    Pros

    I am sure if you work in MS office every day all day, you may get to remember where to find what you want in all those tabs.

    Cons

    There are problems with setting defaults, but, the worst is it's not user friendly. You have to mark down Tabs that is hiding what you need. You spend half your time looking through tabs. Come on MS, I think most of your customers are people that aren't glued to your office 24/7. If you haven't tried the free office suites, then check them out.

    Summary

    MS has their millions and made a great contribution to software, but now they are out of hand. Lets support and contribute to these free office suites.
