Microsoft Office 2010 Releases WorldwideBy CIOinsight | Posted 06-15-2010
Microsoft announced the worldwide availability of Office 2010, more than a month after releasing the software to business consumers. In a bid to bolster its hardware partners, Microsoft is touting the versions of Office 2010 pre-installed on new PCs. Although Office 2010 is expected to sell well, it enters a changing landscape marked by the rise of cloud-based productivity apps such as Google Docs, something Microsoft has somewhat anticipated with its own new Office Web Apps.
The worldwide launch of Office 2010 follows the software's release to business consumers, along with SharePoint 2010, on May 12.
