You're saying this will create an extra "Q" drive, it will run ads all the time, it doesn't sound like too good of an app to run. Also it will use a lot of room on my laptop hard drive which is only 640 gb to begin with. Perhaps I could try the Starter and then delete if I find I don't need it.
Actually its not as bad as it sounds. I used it for a while cos it came preinstalled, then reverted to Office 2007. But if you have to shell out money for an Office license and dont need to do anything exotic, Starter does pretty well. It has only Word and Excel, so if you need to make ppt presentations, this is not for you.
The ads are not obtrusive, the Q drive is a virtual drive, not a real one (it doesnt take up hard disk space). For viewing ppt, you can download the free ppt viewer from MS.
