Windows 7: Do I need to "upgrade" my office 2007?

Hi there
unless you need some of the workplace collaboration stuff (Ms Lync for example) or you are a mega power user writing a huge amount of excel macros - just stick to Office 2007 if you don't want to spend any money -- it still works even on Window 8 Enterprise X-64 so don't worry about it suddenly stopping working.


(Even Office 2003 works --the mean and lean version - but there are some changes so I's stick with your office 2007).

Cheers

I dropped the Microsoft Office suit for Libre Office, its compatible with office, well designed, well made and suits all my needs. Oh and the price is right. £0.00000

LibreOffice 4

I first started using it on knoppix then scrapped the Microsoft suit saved some cash and had a nice change.

Jim I only used the 2010 cos I bought it for my brother and well the extra installs were going begging but in all honesty the 07 is just fine and so is that Kingsoft for that matter it in fact is a whole lot lighter and in my mind faster and without the clutter that even 07 has in parts.
I got it on one of my testers and it flies

Thanks for the replies guys.

I've decided to stick with 2007 for now as I don't see any major benefits from upgrading it to later versions.

Plenty of businesses and other establishments use Office 2007, and if you are familiar with it by all means stick with it. I had never used 2007 and when I got back into college, I got 2010 for $20, and after working with both, I can tell you there isn't a nickels worth of difference for the average user.

Well KB unless you don't count that awful copy / paste and default settings etc etc nonsense quite frankly I should have left 07 on my machine and not bothered with the 10 version.

LOL that is a trainwreck to put it nicely! There are some things that need to be ironed out almost immediately......most of them are stupid default settings that try to "help" you by doing what they "think" you want to do........there should be one button that says turn this crap off!

I haven't encountered any problems for any programs such as words, and I don't find it "sluggish" according to other people as this is the only suite I've been using.
I've read through informations about 2010 and 2013 version and I don't see any huge improvements nor ground-breaking features for these versions. Of course, I might have missed some important facts so I would appreciate it if someone can point out any advantages in using these versions.

So, overall I would like some suggestions of what to do with my current suite. Should I change it or keep it?

Thank you, help would be appreciated it.
What is not broken do not fix

As long as there is nothing wrong with your version of office, there is no reason to upgrade

Haven't you been reading this thread? There are reasons to upgrade; the OP may or may not feel they are applicable.
