I have had a bootlegged copy of Office 2003 for over 5 years. It has served me well but I feel bad about screwing MS like that now that I have a job and money (I didn't back in 03). Newegg has the Office 2007 Home & Student pack licensed for 3 installs on sale for only $80. Thing is, I know Office 2010 will be coming out in like 6 months and I don't want to be out of date that quick. Does anyone know what types of improvements will be added to 2010?

Hopefully it will run faster! 2007 gives me constant latch ups for 2-5 seconds when doing certain general tasks (I'm running on a dual core with 4GB ram).

I like: Programming, Gym, University
Music: House, Dubstep, D&B, Trance, Metal

probably about the same changes that have taken place with every new version of office.

1. New picutres for the buttons on the toolbar.
2. Commonly used items in the menu have been moved and/or renamed so you have to relearn where they are.
3. New hot keys for the help menu
4. Default settings that make doing simple things like changing font size as annoying and complicated as possible.

Just get Open Office, it works fine for casual use and it's free. I'm not a power user of that type of software so I can't say how it compares for power users, but it does what I need it to.

NO! >:o I am buying MS Office now because I am running OOffice on my Windows 7 PC and it is the crappiest software out there! Compatibility with MS files is as basic as you can get, especially with saving because what you see in OO is not what you will see in MSO by a long shot. And there are so many bugs, it makes a 10 minute paper turn into an hour long nightmare. Plus, the UI is terrible. The mere task of putting an image into a document will screw up everything. And don't get me started on its lack of automatic formatting that requires you to reformat every single paragraph you type.

Sorry for the rant. I was up until 4:00 AM on a simple homework assignment the other night fighting with Open Office Writer.

Really? It's worked fine for me (Writer, at least) since 1.5 something 2005 or so. Do you have 3.1? I'm using XP, too, though.
