I just downloaded it and installed the usual stuff (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook). So far so good (but I did keep 2007 versions around but of course I coudn't keep Outlook 2007). Only issue so far was it broke Google Calendar Sync since GCS checks for the Outlook version which is now 14.0.0. A check on the net and then a quick edit of the outlook.exe to change the version number fixed that.

My only concern which I have to prove is, are the PST file backwards compatible? If I decided not to purchase 2010 and go back to 2007, is all my old mail now not readable?

I've not had problems with pst's between 2007 or 2010...

Excel seems to be a tad sluggish and weird on some spread sheets that used to work fine in 2k7.. I can't say I?m a fan of the grouping / 'conversation' behaviour in outlook..

As for the 'social networking' features - Annoying... seems to produce short waits whilst it tries to query something.. Maybe I?m just not that much of a fan of facebook etc etc ?.

Otherwise... Fine. I only use office 2010 for home/work now.. :)

The change of location for alot of features (yet again) is mildy fustrating....

rhysb: You reminded me of another cool outlook feature, multiple exchange accounts. Finally.


Does that require Exchange 2010? I ask because it seems to be a limitation all Exchange connected products have so I've always assumed it was some sort of limitation to the server rather than the client.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.
