My favorite feature is the screen capture tool. It does not allow me to use any other tool to capture the screenshot or to press PrtSc and edit it using MSPaint.
I love it

I've been using Office 2010 Beta for a couple of months and haven't found any problems. The programs launch really fast - the biggest improvement I've seen over 2007 or any previous version. I feel like I save lots of time when Word docs open fast and save fast...not sure if it adds up to much time but it is a noticeable difference!
All the best for ur launch....

Hi there,
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...

Hi!
A unique feature of its type should be added to MS-Word.
That is an image editor should be added to word so that any one could make image more pleasant in his document.
Thanks for the promo!

Those who've been following you for ages get an edge? :D

Anyway, I like Office 2010 simply because its faster than its predecessor!

Word and Publisher has this cool feature finally that is stylistic OpenType ligatures when working with fonts. Publisher 2010 has also got real small caps. These 2 alone are worth the upgrade.

in 2010 the ribbon interface is more attractive and smarter than 2007.
"save to web", "save to share point", "publish as web page".. in file menu bar..
they all are more than 2007.
in MS PPT
transition bar full of new features, animation of different stlyes,and logo of ppt all are different, logo has also changed as it is right side in bottom indicated as "P"

Pratik said...

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…
