yes, its called "buy office 2003".

no there isnt, classic menus and toolbars are dead, live with it.

Here here. The ribbon functionality is highly accessible for all levels of Office user. It is the future and MS have stated they are not going back on this. Time to update yourself!

I've had it for a couple days; it seems so far so good on my machine.
Thanks. I've had a couple "you-really-should-not-have-this" versions, anxious to get a legit public beta.

Howdy!


I too will be one of the first to install a 'legit' product when it's ready.

The ribbon takes some getting used to, just as casetes did when they replaced 8 tracks. I know you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar to some extent and hide the ribbon. Sorta kinda like having the toolbar thing, only different.

The ribbon in Office 2010 is fully customisable

Also there are many add-ons available for office 2007 to bring back the old menu system. due to the evolutionary nature of Office 2010 most of these should work with Office 2010

I was able to get be apart of the technical preview of the software and I have to say that microsoft's office products have always been solid. I will be looking forward to downloading the beta version and testing that out.

I too have been a part of the technical beta, and now that I have a retail version on my computer, I would like to figure out how to get Outlook to work, I can't seem to connect to my msn.com email......the outlook connector does not work, I tried that too.....

Hi Jerry,

Have you tried entering the email details manually? I have a live account, which should be similar, working without issue, but I never bothered with the connector, as I prefer all my email accounts go into one inbox not the separate ones that connectors produce.

Hello wheresjerry, you'd be better served starting a new thread at the Browsers & Mail forum.

Ive no problem with the ribbon, it is far better than toolbars, but I hate not having menus.

I probably wont be upgrading, 2003 still does everything I need.
