I’ve been running the Office 2010 Beta for some time now, and to be blunt, it seriously rocks. Can I share some of my favorite features? These are just a few and don’t even touch on several of the products included, but they should give you a good idea of some new Office goodies:

  • Conversation View in Outlook – my inbox is downright clean, and dare I say, organized.
  • New picture/video editing tools – one click updates to contrast, color, effect, brightness, etc. Picture editing is plain easy.


  • Speed – With the new features, I have noticed that I work fast. Blazing fast. My productivity has gone through the roof with the ability to find recent mail and attachments via the Outlook Social Connector, quickly sorting through long mail threads, and most importantly, the ability to search and find things at what feels like warp speed.


If you want to learn more about Office 2010, here are some partner-specific resources (and some fun stuff too) to get you started:

1. Office 2010 Partner Challenge on Facebook

2. Beta Center for Office 2010, SharePoint 2010, Project 2010, Visio 2010

3. Our personal favorite, Office 2010 Sales Training recos on the Learning Plan Tool

4. Main Office 2010 page for partners, with opportunities by partner type 

We hope these are helpful! Do you have any other cool resources to share?
