  1. That is great. When it will be launched? I still use Office 2003, my best. I had a feel working factor for Office 2007. Do I have to learn something new or go through a training session when I shift to Office 2010 from 2003? And the last not the least how much it costs?

  2. Well thanks for this informative post that beneficent others like me…
