Definition: Office 2010

The latest version of Microsoft's Office suite, introduced in 2010. It uses the same revamped interface and file formats that debuted with Office 2007 and adds enhancements for collaboration and social networking. For example, multiple authors can edit a Word document at the same time, and Outlook users can see their social network contacts in their inbox.

Different Packaging
Instead of the five product packages offered in Office 2007, Office 2010 was reduced to three retail products: Home & Student, Home & Business and Professional. Office Professional Plus is a version for volume licensing that includes Microsoft's Lync unified communications, InfoPath forms creation and SharePoint Workspace (formerly Groove) for synchronizing SharePoint libraries and lists.
