The 2010 ribbon is slimmer and sleeker than its 2007 counterpart. The biggest visual change you'll notice will be a File tab, which replaces the Office Orb of 2007.
There are a variety of licensing options available for Office 2010. The Campus Computer Store has negotiated an agreement with Microsoft to sell Office 2010 Professional Plus to faculty, staff and students for home use at a cost of $99.99. In comparison, this same product would cost you over $450 at a popular big-box store.
Are you a PeopleSoft user? Don't worry! Office 2010 is supported in PeopleSoft.
