Windows 7: 2000 Backwards Compatibility

Looks like a bit of a war beginning here. It is true - Office 2007 (I have tried it) and 2010 allow graphics to be implemented much more easily and tries to make using graphics as easy and flexible as using text.

Also, for business purposes I am looking at checking out Outlook & Access. I understand that the former comes with Home & Student but the latter does not. I also need at least 2 and preferable 3 user licenses. So Riser, can you link to a page which shows that Office 2010 Pro has two user licenses? That would be very helpful.

Thanks,
Wasila

Pichu:

It's great you are so happy with Office 2010 and 7. At last, someone gets exactly what they need. By the way, I never said "Screw Windows 7!". Yes it's a good OS but is it so much better then XP? Worth hundreds of dollars in "Upgrades"? Looking for the value again. And please don't produce another screed justifying the MS marketing hype. You have your opinion; I have mine. Let's agree to differ.

Wasila:

Microsoft sets Office 2010 pricing | Beyond Binary - CNET News

-second paragraph.

Report: No Upgrade Pricing for MS Office 2010 - PCWorld Business Center

-paragraph 9.

I see you picked up on the $199 offer. Investigate thoroughly; there are restrictions.

Hmm... pricing is completely useless to me. I'm operating in GBP, not USD. Also Riser, as for upgrading to 7 I would say that most people get it pre-installed with their computer anyway. So there it's definitely worth it.

Then why did you link to CAD/USD prices in your previous post?

Try openoffice.org.
It's free for personal use and I'm sure it works with Vista and Windows 7.

Yes.
97 to 2003 use .doc, .xls, .ppt and so on.
OO has no problem opening these or the newer x files (.docx, .xlsx, etc.)
