office 2007 or 2010?

Hi
i have a legit version of office 2007

i use mostly word

i know the office 2007 has a buggy installer ,indeed there is a cleaner

i have never installed office 2007

so i'm worried about install it or upgrade to 2010

There are a few advantages to 2010. You can copy from one document, paste to another, and have a choice of which formatting to retain. I actually installed the 64-bit version, which was of course a mistake. Certain plug-ins will not work, such as EndNote 4. You can take screen shots directly from Word, new word art effects. etc. Nothing really major that would warrant me, personally, from upgrading. But I am entitled to the latest software where I work, so it's a no brainer. If you have the money to blow, get 2010. If you are conserving cash, stay with 2007. If you are broke, go with OpenOffice (which has now changed its name).

well here's my opinion: why pay for office 2010 if you already have 2007?

unless there's a compelling new feature of 2010 that you need and isn't available in 2007, then save your money and stick with what you've got.

i don't know about the dodgy 2007 installer - it's worked fine each time i've tried it.

thanks a lot

my worry, trouble is the 2007 installer , i installed under xp , and it mess up my xp
thanks for the sincere, honest help

by the way office 2010 is in multi language ? i mean can i have the english and my native language and maybe german too ,like Windows 7 ultimate


why does openoffice change the name ? OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite
and openoffice it's great and free but it's a lot more slow then microsoft office , at least compared to office 2003 and 2007

i'm sorry, i don't know about multi-language options...

...but i think you can add multi-language packs to any version of office, i don't know how easy it is.

In Office 2007 (and in Office 2010) you can add languages. I have done it with no problems.

Add a Language to Office Programs


But the only way you can add spell check for these lanquages is by purchasing a language pack from Microsoft.

Buy, install, configure or uninstall a Microsoft Office 2007 Language Pack

Open Office is open source but published by a big company called Oracle. The open source developers said that Oracle had to much control over the project, so they left and created a new office suite called LibreOffice. Apparently LibreOffice is much faster then OpenOffice.

what i hate about office 2007 ,is that it changes my font system and if i uninstall it , it did not restore them

is there a way to export via regedit the fonts system setting?
