    Good software, but Microsoft's manipulations

    Posted
    NateOceanside

    This is typical Microsoft manipulation. Don't get me wrong, this is great software, especially Excel. However, when I bought my new HP Mini netbook, I'm offered a deal for this software for only $99. Of course that's only good for a SINGLE installation. But I have a desktop machine too. So I return the $99 stuff and buy this $149 version (same programs but up to THREE installs). Trouble is I also need Outlook and want Access which aren't included. But *those* programs are available separately for $140 EACH. Of course if you are a student you can download Outlook, Access, and Publisher for free. Microsoft, please sell us your products at a fair price and without all the marketing shenanigans!

    It flies open faster than previous versions I've used. The toolbar across the top took some getting used to since I've mainly used the XP and 2003 versions, didn't have much experience with 2007. Price as always is a little high, but that's the way Microsoft is. One thing I don't like is that Outlook isn't included like it is on the Mac Office version...(I know it's not "Outlook" on the Mac, but a mail client is still included on it at least)

    Necessary for any student

    Ok, from a novice's point of view....was beside myself that I had to pay for Microsoft Word, etc and then had difficulty installing it on the laptop. Took it back to Best Buy for assistance and they wanted to charge me $30 to install it. I know the product is good and necessary for any student...was disappointed with the lack of help from Best Buy. When I made the purchase, along with a year's warranty, the sales person told me if I had any problems/issues just to take it back in and they would help me...never mentioned a fee for it.

    It's the standard that's required for school

    Required software for my 7th grade kids laptop to be used at her particular school, so while great product, hate being forced to buy. If they would use OpenOffice for a standard product, everyone could have it for free. Oh well. But at least it's not an outrageous price for the Student-Home version and able to load on up to 3 PC's.

    I upgrade from Microsoft Office 2003 to Microsoft Office 2010 Student Version. The new version has many changes that simply take some getting used to. I'm still having trouble finding certain features, but I'm sure they're there somewhere. Over all I like the new version better and am pleased that I purchased it.

    Does what is needed

    Microsoft 2010 seems more intuitive as a student tool, but that's only if you're coming from an older version of Office. There are several template options in both Word and Excel, which is nice; although it's expensive it's pretty much an indispensable tool.

    Unfortunately, I didn't realize that I had a sample Office that came with the computer, so it was not installing. I needed to call the Microsoft help desk for instructions. They were very helpful with me. I can now have Excel, Word, and Powerpoint to use with my computer.

    This microsoft office, it has more features than ever before, it combines elements that were previously in only publisher to the other office products. The price is still high however, but is almost unrivaled. Everybody uses office for business and school. Being compatible is important.

    this product seems good so far. I am upgrading from the 2000 version so it is taking some getting used to. for the price difference, had i realized it before, i probably would have bought the home and business version that was only $50 more, and has outlook as well.

    I am still learning to use this new Office software. I do have some issues with all the busy 'stuff' at the top of the screen being somewhat confusing at times. Why does MS think they always have to change everything with each new issue?

    A version which adds ACCESS & PUBLISHER is desired

    I bought this for my Spare Notebook that I use when having service on my Main System. I could NOT get 2007 & had to be careful not to be uncompatable! I use (in order of use) EXCEL, WORD, ACCESS, & PUBLISHER. I really DON'T use anything else!

    If you're still running Office 2003, but you've moved onto Windows 7 (or 8), its time you upgrade to a modern version of Office. A bit of a learning curve with the reconfigured menus and all, but otherwise good.

    I really only use WORD. Just wish it didn't cost so much when I originally bought it couple years ago. It could be installed on up to 3 computers. This is the second one. So, it works for me!

    I was upset that I didn't purchase it sooner, but now that I have it works great. It's always good to have the updated version of Office. Bought it for half the price which was even better.

    Mixed feelings versus XP

    Where I do a lot of family movie type things, Windows Movie Maker in my old windows XP was easier to use and I feel offers more than Windows Live Movie Maker. Other than that seems OK.

    I see no major change just more expensive. But I still perfer it to open office. Excell has some function moved which makes it a challenge. Otherwise it is good.

    More options but is confusing for a old Microsoft word 2000 user. If I din not have computer and word experience it would be diffucult. My wife hasn't a clue.

    I love Microsoft Office I just wish I had purchased professional rather than home and student. There are so many more programs available with professional.

    Didn't really need the disk I loaded it to 2 new windows 8 machines so all I needed was the code could have saved a not of packaging by just selling the license code
