(Episode 495; 12 minutes 37) This week Microsoft launched their latest Office suite, initially for corporate users but it's available on general release from mid June. So why should you upgrade?

The most compelling reason is probably because this is the first real chance to use these applications on the move. There are browser based and smart-phone versions of the applications, so you can start a document on your desktop and pick it up on the way home. That's a useful, actually essential, capability these days when so any of us work outside regular hours.

In today's BTalk I ask Kirk Koenigsbauer, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President for the Office Business Productivity Group, which feature from Office 2010 most excites him?

I resisted the temptation to ask him how they came up with the name.
