Microsoft The Microsoft empire is built upon two pillars: the Windows operating system, and Microsoft Office. Windows 7 made its way unto the scene last year, and now it's time to work on the other pillar. Today, Microsoft officially launched Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Regular customers will be able to purchase the new versions next month, starting at 119 USD.

How is the performance compared to 2003 and 2007?
I'm particularly interested in Word.

Why do you need a high-performance word processing application?

You need a high performance powerpoint application, unfortunately.

I have seen powerpoints that take 5 seconds, easily, to open the next slide in openoffice.

Every single version of Office has always consumed more RAM, been slowed to load and added unnecessary complexity and this will not change now. It would be, sort of, breaking tradition.

My very subjective assessment is that 2010 loads faster than 2007. That is why I skipped 2007 (2003 was fine enough), but now I'm going for 2010.
