"With Office 2010, Microsoft hopes to find us all on the same electronic page"
Having used MSO 10 for a little while, I cannot get used to that ribbon and the fact that all my usual ease of use has disappeared. I shall be going back to Office 2003. Fortunately I backed up my files to a DVD BEFORE installing 2010 so going back should be easy - I hope.
Sorry Microsoft, but in my view, you've done it again!
I tried Office 2007 for a few months, didn't like it and went back to using Wordperfect which I have been using since it first came out on a floppy disk all those years ago.
Incidentally, I spotted my first ever virus back in the late '80s when, while typing a letter, all the words crumpled up and fell down the screen to the bottom where they just lay in a pile!! I can't remember now what the message was which came up on the screen, though I do remember that it was quite amusing.
I did enjoy those happy days....ten minutes to write a letter, then two hours getting the PC and printer to talk to each other.
I agree....I also use Outlook a lot and now find it bloated to say the least...I migrated from 2003, which I still have on other PC's, and still find the creation of macro's a pain in 2007 and can't understand why they haven't devised a way of showing public holidays in the "To Do Bar"!!!
Office 2007 was a great improvement over 2003, and I think the same about 2010. It depends on what parts of the suite you're looking at - Word is not much changed, although version control is improved, same with Excel. Powerpoint is a whole lot better, and Publisher (which I use a lot and is the main reason for upgrading) is hugely improved. Horses for courses, I guess...
