    Stick with 2007

    I have used Office 2003, 2007, and now 2010 (used on a 60 day trial basis) I was so afraid to switch from Office 2003 to Office 2007, but when I did and when I had time to play around and teach myself just how much more convenient it was I immediately fell in love with it. When I switched to Office 2010 for the trial, I immediately noticed differences that I did not like. I did not like that they removed the little Microsoft logo file drop down menu and replaced it with an actual file drop down menu with less options and combined options. It makes it more difficult to find the things you need. The printing is less useful and is not designed like it is in Office 2003-2004 and Office 2007. I changed the color scheme to blue from silver immediately also because I didn't like the classic look of the Office version. It's new, not old! Overall, yes the programs are designed great but I don't see the need to upgrade to Office 2010 when you have Office 2007. Office 2007 is better in the fact that it is easier to use. Why spend money on an upgrade when you aren't getting anything. Also, even if you are a student at college and the school provides the software for you, I still recommend you to stick with Office 2007, at least until they come out with something better. I love Microsoft! I love Windows 7! But they made a product that is appealing enough to upgrade to. Just because they added a way to collaborate with partners and work on documents together. There are other ways of doing so and I am sure that they will come up with something for Office 2007 that allows you to do that like an add-in of some type.

    bought this to load onto my laptop and desktop dell computers.....laptop no problem....SURE WISH THIS WOULD HAVE COME WITH A BIG FAT LABEL STATING IT IS A DVD!! cant use it on my older dell 4700 as this does not have a dvd drive.....several attempts to download the program have had failures and disastrous results~this after long long long download sessions on broadband connex no less....i am now attempting to get this from microsoft on cds so that i can use it on the desktop computer. i spent a fair amount of money on this, and i expect to be able to use it on more than one computer here....at least to rewrite my resume and get a job to pay for the thing!

    I needed to upgrade because of some compatibility issues. I was really bummed out when they took away the postal bar code away from envelope tools. Otherwise, it's a typically clogged Microsoft product that slows down my Macbook Pro and Dell XPS laptops.
