5.0 out of 5 stars A big improvement... 19 July 2010
By Tim
I have been using Office 97 and Office 2003 for a number of years and had heard of, and seen, the new ribbon interface in 2007. I installed the Beta version of Office 2010 some 6 months ago. Once I got used to the new ribbon, I found Office 2010 to be simple to use and I did not hesitate to upgrade to the full paid-for version when it was published in June. I have no regrets. Installation was very smooth - I took the precaution of totally uninstalling the beta version beforehand. The full version has ironed out one or two little niggles from the beta version and seems to run extremely well. I use Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint on a daily basis - and have also found the new Onenote to be a very useful tool when researching information.

Have come straight from the menu interfaces in Off 97 and 2003, I found the ribbons a little strange at first; however, once used to them and getting to find my way around them, I have found them to be very useful and - in the main - intuitive.

Heartily recommended - a BIG improvement over Office 97 and 2003.

2.0 out of 5 stars Be Wary 20 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase
Be very wary if you are using this as an upgrade to 2007. I have 2007 Pro and wanted to upgrade my Word, Excel , Powerpoint and Outlook- it took multiple Custom installs to get the combination I wanted, (the standard instal deletes any 2007 programmes not in the new package you are using- in my case access and Publisher) BUT my email has never worked since, without a restore back to 2007. At least 3 times there were errors during the instal itself but it eventually worked using the 'keep all previous versions' option. The issue with Outlook may be with my ISP settings (BT) but with exactly the same settings as 2007 it fails to work. I quite like a few of the 2010 improvements - the document section view in Word, the text parts and the video in Powerpoint but you can achieve many of these in 2007 with workarounds. The fact that no upgrade versions are offered means I fear that the whole upgrade process has been poorly thought out. I have a VERY clean system so be very sure 2010 offers you beneifits before upgrading.

Incidently, this can be used on up to 3 computer - not the 1 as stated in the advert.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than i expected 31 July 2010
Verified Purchase
I initially resisted the upgrade from office 2003 to 2007 because i really hated the ribbon interface and i did not want to spend valuable time learning what I considered to be an awkward, counter-intuitive, even dumbed-down interface, and to be forced into making additional mouse clicks for functions whose location I already knew instinctively following 15 years of Office use.

However, I recently needed to replace my old laptop with a Windows 7 one. I tried to install my old copy of Office 2003 on it. Unfortunately MS made sure it did not work 100%, in particular Outlook with Connector would not access hotmail and live email accounts. MS always seem to do this, they eventually frustrate the user and force them to spend money on an upgrade. I had no option but to upgrade because my email refused to work properly despite my best technical efforts.

The price of Office 2010 at the time of purchase was discounted quite significantly, so that helped the decision to buy. You can install it on 2 computers, not 3 as someone else mentioned. But this can only effectively be 1 desktop and 1 on a laptop. I did not fully read the license but my guess is that you cannot actually run both concurrently, but that's not a problem for me.

When Office 2010 arrived i feared the worst in terms of function confusion and the horrible ribbon interface, but i was really very surprised at seeing a much more logical and improved ribbon. Sure, it took a few days to get used to it after office 2003, but eventually you realise that it is quite logical and I found some functions readily accessible that were previously buried away. Unfortunately though some other readily accessible features are located an extra one or two mouse clicks away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Office 2010 is a big step forward 20 Sep 2010
By Nick G
I run a small consulting business dealing with multi nationals, and need to be on the leading edge of visual presentation, and analysis. Having been a serious critic of Microsoft, even swapping to a mac at one stage, I'm a convert. This new suite allows me to achieve higher levels of finish than 2007, more easily. The ability to mix graphics into documents, including spreadsheets has been strongly improved, with more common functionality. The micro charts in Excel allow you to create dashboards without using external plug ins.

In general the functionality feels more available, particularly in formatting. Setting out pages in Excel is a bit of a pain to begin with, and printing commands take some getting used to.

One real revalation in this release is Outlook, which now has far broader capabilites in terms of maintaining multiple accounts, and connecting to various sources of mail. The other shift between this and office 2003/7 is the improvement in web based collaboration, which I am exploring with my networked colleagues.

The install was a hassle on Vista SP2 and refused to register. The usual torture contacting Microsoft ensued, and eventually they sorted it with a new product key, but it was a pain.

Other than this, I'm really pleased. Very bug free, this appears more stable than 2007 in advanced use. Lots more power, and much prettier, I reccommend it.
