Office 2010 revealed

Microsoft is expected to unveil its Office 2010 software suite at its Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans this evening.

Unfortunately for whoever will be doing the unveiling, somebody else at Microsoft appears to have jumped the gun. Earlier today, the Microsoft Office 2010 website became live and, although it has since been pulled, a copy can be viewed over at Google Cache.

The website features a series of videos detailing both Office 2010 as a suite, and each of its individual applications. We get a good look at a number of new features, as well as Microsoft's Office Web Applications - a collection of web-based companions for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.

The introduction to Office 2010 can be viewed below, with all the other video tours over on page two. Refresh if you don't see them - the videos seem to be up and down - and remember that you'll need Microsoft Silverlight in order to view them.
