    Favorite MS Office Version

    From all the MS Office versions I like XP the most. It is really good to operate and not complicated like 2007. I think there are all the features that anyone requires. I just want to know, which is your favorite version?

    The 2003 suite

    I have to agree with r937, Word 2000 was my fave, I can't even remember why I stopped using it.

    2007 only brought ease of formatting improvements and backwards compatibility issues it seems.

    Office 2003 is better than the more recent versions of office but not as good as most of the alternatives from other office suite providers.

    I preferred Office 2003.

    I'm only now getting used to the ribbon introduced in Office 2007 after 2 years of using it.

    Haven't looked at Office 2010 yet, but will soon as I don't like being more than 1 or 2 versions at the most behind the latest version.

    Well My favorite Office is 1997 and 2003. I have used 2000 but it was not too much attracting for me, so I switched to 2003 now.

    I've used 97, 2003, and 2007. My favourite? 2007 because of the beautiful user interface. At first I disliked it (probably like everyone does when change first happens) but when I got used to it I started loving it. Now I love it and Microsoft Office 2007 is my favourite version, but I can't bloody wait to get my hands on Microsoft Office 2010 Just because I love new shiny things!

    Well, you can sign up for a trial of MSO 2010. I did and I got a trial version to enlighten my self. As a professional. As a user... I don't know, open source sounds better. I keep MSO at high esteem, just that I'm not sure I will use all the feats so to justify the money spent.

    Actually, the ribbon it's not that bad. You just need to open your self to its novelty. At first it's a bit frustrating, I'll give you that
