Rio de Janeiro holds two huge urban forests:

The Parque Estadual da Pedra Branca is considered to be the largest forest in urban area in the world. It has 12.500 hectares.

And the "Floresta da Tijuca", which is considered to be the third largest forest in urban area in the world, with 3.972 hectares of preserved area. This forest is not natural. It had been destroyed to make way for Coffee farms, but in an effort to preserve Rio's water supply, in the 19th century, the forest had been rebuilt, to preserve the rivers sources.

Many nature reserves close to the city. Even suburbs feel like they're in the bush sometimes here.

If by "green", you mean efficient, then Portland, Oregon is second in the world on many lists.

Where's the city? It looks like one building on top of a hill. I guess that makes any rural area a green city?

The city is not green overall, but there is a park on a reclaimed river, right in the center of the city.

There is a large park/wood right next to the CBD.

One of the nicest places I've been so far. A lot of attention has been paid to green elements in the city.

Microsoft Office

If you downloaded the Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Key Office system Beta 2 Technical Refresh you may have noticed that all the Office splash screens and icons are now more slick looking and different. They area partially-rounded box shape, as seen in the Office Professional 2007 Key here, and I think it adds a little something to the look and feel of Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Key. Of course this isn't by any means a big new feature, but I am always interested in little UI tweaks that Office 2010 draw the user a bit more toward a product based on the look, which the new icons in Office 2010 Standard does.
