Stoobalou (1774024) writes "After the huge overhaul that was Office 2007, it was difficult to see where Microsoft could really go next. If you’d asked us three years ago, our money would have been on tinkering changes to the way the suite worked with backend tools such as SharePoint.

We were half right, most the changes are of the fine-tuning sort. But to our surprise, there’s a lot more to the new suite than just backend bodges. Clearly spurred into action by the rise of social media and competition from Google, Microsoft has actually managed to deliver some nifty – if understated – new features."
