A key new feature in Microsoft Office 2010 is the ability to easily save documents as PDF or XPS files. In Office 2007 this was possible using a plug-in you had to manually install, so it’s nice to see the functionality built-in to Office 2010 right out of the box with full PDF integration for most of the Office 2010 Suite including Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
