2. Microsoft RTMs Office 2010
This week, Office 2010, along with SharePoint 2010, Visio 2010 and Project 2010, were all released to manufacturing. The latest versions of the Office and Sharepoint cash cows add deeper integration, but the most daring part of this announcement is Office Web Apps, Web-based versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote that Microsoft will offer free of charge.
Office has been a steady performer for Microsoft, but Office Web Apps show that Microsoft isn't just going to sit around and watch Google Docs eat its lunch.
