Microsoft Office is a staple product that dominates the landscape. Nearly every major corporation uses the productivity software to get its business done fast and effectively. According to a Microsoft PR email, Office 2010 now ranks as the fastest-selling consumer version of Office in history. To date, more than 6 million copies have been sold which averages out to 30 copies sold every minute.
Office is used by more than 750 million users worldwide and that number continues to grow each day. Office has become such an integral part of business that many universities teach courses about the software platform and require a level of proficiency before a student is allowed to graduate.
Office 2010 was released in June 2010 and featured many upgrades across all of the Office products. Office 2010 represents Microsoft's next push into the world of business processing as it looks to maintain its competative edge over OpenOffice and iWork.
