Microsoft With the spotlight on Windows 7, you'd almost forget that there's another product category Microsoft is rather successful in: office suites. Microsoft Office 2007 was a massive change from previous versions, delivering a completely new interface that was genuinely easier to use. Office 2007 will soon be seeing its second service pack (with OpenDocument Format support for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), while the next version of of Office, dubbed Office 2010, will arrive pretty soon as well.

PDF support

I wonder if PDF support in Office will make the freely-available Word Viewer a possible alternative to Acrobat and Foxit (And Sumatra, my personal fav on Windows). Word Viewer launches nearly instantly, very much unlike Acrobat, and integrates well with browsers, very much unlike Foxit.
