Yes, I have been using office 2010 for about a week now and perhaps believe that it is a good upgrade from the 2007 version. The streamlined interface is easy on the eyes and I have to admit that the best feature that I came across has been the ability to embed video in ppt presentations along with support for streaming videos from sites like youtube… The editing features for the videos is very decent from presentation point of view….

Thank you for organizing this giveaway… I think might be lucky this time around…

I have been using Office 2007 for a long time at work. Was excited to see the Office 2010 Beta was available and tried it. It is amazing in a lot of ways and really love it. Would like others to look at it give away to people who resist updating to the latest one just being apprhensive about it.

Microsoft Office is complete office manager package. It helps office works and i use it for my development also. I think many people dont know that access & excel is gr8 capability for databases and i used it as worth.

i used excel to genrate 1000 lines script by just dragging cell with arguments.

So i give it ranking on top.

Hello Suprotim,
The feature that impresses me most is that one can now seamlessly collaborate on a project with one's coworkers using webapps over SkyDrive or Facebook.Besides,the "paste preview tool",which lets one assess how a copied content would look like while keeping the source formatting intact or stripped or merged without actually pasting it!!,is also very enticing.The more widespread usage of the ribbon interface now across all components of the office is also a welcome move.So keeping in mind the things I have said above,do count me in the giveaway please!!
Thanking you...Dhiraj

I love the features of word which makes life simple for constant proposal writers like me! Header, Footer, easy colo schemes, covering letter title styles and finally the ribbon interface!
The ribbon interface is definitely the best part of Office 2010! Too good. . .. plus I am going to like the stronger photo/video integration with powerpoint for my presentations….and finally, the simultaneous editing of files from two locations means no more file open in another computer errors!

he editing features for the videos is very decent from presentation point of view….

I would like to have a license of MS office 2010 as i am a hardcore pc user and creating and publishing documents and reports are among my priorities , i find ms office 2010 as the best and secure office version ever ,it is secure ,it saves my files directly in pdf format ,its ribbon interface makes files creation more easier and interesting ,its fast and has much larger array of new features to give ur experience a new dimension ,but the sad thing for me is that i am still stucked with office 2003 and want to upgrade my system with this gem.

he best features that I liked the most in Office are as follows:
The productive ribbon interface and the backstage interface, the paste preview function, the new Excel sparklines function. Obviously I can’t left the themes and the ease of creating the best looking presentation in less time and more small changes too!
I hope I win one license of Office 2010..this will help me a lot..

The best features in office 2010? In my opinion,
Sparklines in excel is a fantastic tool to impress bosses with,

The remove background tool and picture effects nearly eliminate the use of third party programmes while making reports

And my personal favorite, backstage really improves upon the file menus, and printing.

I have been using Office 2010 for while now, first the CTP, then BETA and now the 60 day trial for Office 2010. I really like the new ribbon for OneNote and Outlook. Calculator feature in OneNote is cool too, just can’t do any work without OneNote these days. The video editing in PowerPoint is helpful for me.

But the most important feature that I like is the conversation view in Outlook. It has helped me in sorting tons of my emails. I'm truly in love with that feature.

I would really love to have a copy of the Office 2010 for me.
