What's the deal with Microsoft Office 2010?

Gotta test it first, then discuss with the boss to decide when we upgrade everyone. I've suggested OpenOffice in the past, but that always falls on deaf ears. Everyone is apparently addicted to Outlook. Even the Mac users are eagerly awaiting Outlook on the Mac, which they expect in 2011.

Of course, the Mac users are also pushing the iPad as an essential new business tool.

Hopefully the time travel project won't be unduly delayed by the Office Upgrade Treadmill. We're already 10 years behind schedule. CEO thinks we can make it up in the end. Once the technology is working, we can party like it's 1999 again, because it will be.

Just hope there are no more screwups like last time; otherwise we could be partying like it's 1599!
