I completely agree with you it took me a little bit of time getting use to but the ribbon is so mush easier to use then the drop down menus.

And yeah, 2010 is much better than 2007, especially if you have 64-bit Windows.

I have Windows 7 64-bit, so what differences will I see with Office 2010.

TBH I don't see any difference between a 32-bit OS and a 64-OS.

The only difference that I have seen is that some software will not work on a 64-bit OS and in reality it has actually made my PC less user freindly and usefull.

With 4GB of RAM, the difference is less, but one of the reasons you may not have noticed much improvement with a 64-bit OS might be that none of your programs are 64-bit. 64-bit allows the program to use more RAM, and thus run faster. A friend of mine has a laptop with 64-bit OS and 8GB of RAM, and Outlook 2010 (64-bit) runs several times faster for him than Outlook 2007 (32-bit).

So basically my PC will run much faster, and the reason why I aint seeing no advantage is because my current software is all 32 bit.

Well thanks very much for the info.

I've noticed that Office 2010 applications open and close faster on marginal systems than the 07 or 03 version.

I prefer 2010 to 2007 but I think 2007 looks a lot better, looking at the screens that si8mon posted 2010 seems a little dull :/ but I think it runs a lot faster

So apart from the fact that it runs faster what else does it do better than 2007, does it have any new features or is it easier to use?

Yeah, that's basically it. And you're welcome.

Which is one of my favorite things about the new version. 2007 was always painfully slow for me.

Check out Wikipedia, they've got the added/changed/removed features from 2007 to 2010 listed nicely: Microsoft Office 2010 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When I first saw the ribbon bar, and tried to use it, I could find nothing. It was EXTREMELY counter intuitive, and the layout made no sense.
It still doesn't.

Y'know you can customize the layout of the ribbon right? Anyway, I think it's easier than digging through an endless tree of submenus...
