My biggest complaint about the ribbon is not being able to customize it. I'll be getting 2010 beta when available.

Does Outlook work in the new version, or the one due out next month? I can not for the life of me get it to work at all....tried the connector also to no avail.....any help would be great, I love outlook..

I'm still using Outlook 2007 for production work but have trialed it on a laptop with data and it works fine - This is with a live address rather than an MSN one though.

The problem I have with the connector is that it creates a separate in-box for each account, which doesn't match the way I work - all accounts dump into a single inbox which is then filtered, flagged and sorted into folders

The port settings for Live addresses is ...

In
POP3 Port 995 with SSL encryption
Out
SMTP Port 25 with Auto encryption

It may be the same for MSN but you would have to check

Is Microsoft Office really something that you guys feel that you need and are willing to pay for it? I've got it on my work laptop and simply use whatever work has provided...but I've never been inclined to actually own a copy of Microsoft Office for home use. That's simply money that I cannot justify spending.

I have a TechNet sub so it's a non-issue for me.

Gotcha. I've got an MSDN operating systems subscription at work....but that doesn't include the office products. Plus, I don't use my MSDN software from work at home either.

I would not actually use Office if I didn't need it to support clients - I would be quite happy using OpenOffice for my own work and I do keep an active copy as I have recommended OO to various people.

I must admit that I would probably be lost without outlook - I have it set up to sort and tag my emails and RSS feeds and it is also my client diary so it is essential there. Have not found anything that approaches the natural way it works for me, though that could just be familiarity of course

I did purchase 2007 year before last before I got the sub and I use it a LOT.

If you've ever had to use OpenOffice to edit a file that was created in a MS office app, you'd be happy to purchase office for your home use. The student/home version isnt that horribley priced.
