My, what bold colors you have.

Microsoft Office – the essential suite of productivity software for many businesses and students. While the launch of this a new version of Office doesn’t command nearly the same amount of fanfare as a new Windows, Office 2010 has many people looking forward to its release.

Those curious to see what Office 2010 looks like can check out the public beta available for download. Those curious to what Office 2010 will look like when it hit stores can peep the images below.

Polish site CentrumXP.pl got its hands on what it believes to be the box art for the next version of Office. While these images are not final and might even be fake, CentrumXP did secure the final box art for Windows 7 months before Microsoft made it official.

    Seems a bit busy compared to the elegance of the Win7 packaging.

    Well the packaging certainly distinguishes this version as you won't be able to mistake these versions for any of the previous versions.

    Although you'd think that they would go with packaging that a bit smaller to save on packaging.

    The coloring scheme seems a bit.. bland. Bad color combinations too. That and the logos should probably be a bit smaller. They take up a bit too much space and ruin the visual balance.

    "Here are some pictures of the boxes in which some software might be packaged".

    What next, photos of the packaging that UPS might use to ship it? Images of an actual roll of tape used to secure the packing boxes? Plaster casts of the UPS truck's tire treads? Naked pix of the UPS guy? (Oh, wait, i have that already).

    @ssalim: So soo true, but a little over done.

    Besides that, the box doesn't worry me. The little white tag above it on the shelf is usually what gives me nightmares.

    Thanks for showing us the box. Probably the only time I'll examine it because I won't be buying it. I might end up using it, but surely not paying for it ;)

    Noticed the "Office Home and Student 2010" says "Family Pack*" on the box.

    Wonder if the * means it's only offered for a limited time... err "while supplies last".

    In fact they don't! Microsoft usually ships custom made display shelves for their products. They fit like a glove!

    Is anyone else appalled by the horrible perspective on these boxes? Damn my graphic arts background!

    The good thing about these boxes is that they clearly identify the different office applications that are in each packages.

    "Office Home and student" version seems enough for most of people and the X3 licence is nice. It just need a low price now.

    I think I have read somewhere that there would also be a free lite version (not talking about the beta). Interesting.
