Windows 7: Office 2010 or 2013

I use Office 2013 Pro & have had no problems & I have got used to the white background. I suppose I look mainly for functionality rather than looks.

Functionality is important but, when has to stare at a screen for extended periods, looks become just as important. That white background is hard on the old eyes and the flat appearance makes selections blend in together.

Hi all

Outlook in 2013 is a lot better at connecting to Hotmail and AoL etc. Also I find the file format support has improved but not enough to justify an upgrade from 10 to 13. Personally, I would choose 2013 if you have a no cost option.

Something else to keep in mind is Office 2013 only has single computer license versions available. Office 2010 Home and Student had "Family Packs" that had licenses for three computers for very little more than a single version.

When 2013 first came out, it was treated the same as an OEM OS; one couldn't transfer the license to another computer. If the computer you put it on died, say, six months later, you were out of luck. That raised such an uproar from consumers, M$ relented and loosened up that restriction. That came too late for me; when I saw how 2013 looked when it came out and learned about the original transfer restriction, I caught a 2010 Family Pack on sale, even though I had a good Family pack of 2007 (which I wound up giving to someone whose son needed it for school but couldn't afford to buy it), to make sure I had a good version of Office until Win 7's EOL.
