Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 Editor's Review
Microsoft's PowerPoint 2010 free trial rings a number of changes on the 2007 version. In particular, the "ribbon" interface has been given a new look that's closer to 2003's menu bar. The File menu returns to PowerPoint 2010, although it now takes you to a separate screen.
The change from the menu bar to the ribbon in 2007 did not play especially well with many users. Those who found that ribbon less than intuitive may see 2010's updated ribbon as a return to form.
The File menu button was replaced by the Windows orb in 2007, but now it's back with a new twist. Instead of opening a menu, it now transports you to the "Backstage" view -- a full screen of controls. Backstage is where you access all of the save controls, the options for printing and sharing, and some features like exporting your presentation as a HD video file. Sharing has never been easier, with the option to upload your presentations onto Skydrive, Windows Live's free file hosting service.
Other innovations that stood out include the much-improved multimedia media functionality, with more and better effects, animations and transitions. You can embed videos from YouTube, bookmark specific scenes, and trim videos without needing to open the video editing tool.
Pros: Improved interface, updated multimedia features, free cloud hosting.
Cons: Extra features make for a more complicated program, while very advanced user.
Conclusion: A cleaned-up interface and lots of extra features. For new or occasional users it may be bewildering, while advanced multi-media fans may find it lacking. Download PowerPoint 2010 and see for yourself.
