The next version of Microsoft Office still had the codename Office 14 back in January. Now Microsoft seems to have decided to stay with the release year nomenclature. The next version is called Office 2010. Arstechnica (thanks Sicarius) is hosting lots of leaked screenshots of the upcoming Technical Preview of Office 2010, which is supposed to go to testers in 2 months.
Windows 7 is coming this fall in time for the essential holiday shopping season, but as the name indicates Office 2010 is coming next year.
Office 2010 includes Access 2010, Excel 2010, InfoPath 2010, OneNote 2010, Outlook 2010, PowerPoint 2010, Project 2010, Publisher 2010, SharePoint Designer 2010, SharePoint Workspace 2010, Visio 2010, and Word 2010 - no surprise here.
Why do I not feel excited about looking at the Office 2010 screenshots? I guess it is the icon blur. I am just not part of feature overload target group anymore.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
