I am thrilled as ever to be running Microsoft Office 2010. I use it for work, school, home, and hobby. It is by far the best Microsoft Office release ever. All that said, if you are a student with academic standing, I would seriously encourage you to by Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate today.
As a grad student, one of the biggest headaches we manage through is team collaboration. My team works across multiple time zones on four continents. Part of the challenge of collaboration is simply team dynamics. Each time a team membership changes, how you collaborate often resets along with group dynamics. However, the tools we use do not change and those tools are Microsoft Office.
In Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Edition, we included Microsoft Groove. Put simply, Groove keeps everyone on the same page and in sync. All of my peers travel and we are not always in a location where we can sustain Internet access. Groove syncs documents in the background when you are connected to the Internet so that they are available when you are not. If one of my team mates is in Chile or the backwoods of Germany, Groove provides a remarkable advantage over Web-based document stores. Windows Live SkyDrive is great when you have access to the Web. Groove is better when frequent and constant access to the Internet is not possible.
So why am I telling you this now. Well, in a few months, Microsoft Office 2010 will replace Microsoft Office 2007 in the marketplace. At that time, Microsoft will introduce a new stock-keeping-unit (SKU) called Microsoft Office Professional Academic 2010. It has everything you need, save Groove, which has been renamed SharePoint Workspace 2010 in the Office 2010 wave. So if you want Groove and the ability to get Office 2010 at no additional cost, then you should get Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Edition now.
Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Edition includes all of the popular Office products, along with Groove, InfoPath, and OneNote. With the current tech guarantee, students who purchase now will get a product key code when Microsoft Office 2010 is available no later than October 2010. You can find out more at the Ultimate Steal website.
