I, too use a number of the components of M$ Office on a daily basis but it is going to be difficult to persuade me to move to this new version after only paying out a significant amount for the Office XP version just over a year ago.
Good point Steven, why do we pay so much more than those in the US. It is surely not all down to carriage. Its annoying that we appear to be charged so much more. Any ideas anyone? Of course, there is really very little we could do about it anyhow.
