Word 2007 feels like lots of changes for little point. Well there is a point - the need to get people to buy a new version that has very little to offer compared with Word 2003 and boost Microsoft's revenues. Look at it as your charity donation. 95% of users will only be frustrated by the changes that slow you down and mean that you have to search for the feature that you know is there but can't find on the "logical" new menus - logical to who? - not me. The basic functionality has hardly changed. Advance users will find that a lot of frustrations have been addressed and things like charts are much improved - but how many people do know who put a chart in their report? If they do pasting from Excel will be 99.9%.
Microsft has a unique reputation for its help - and it is no better in Word 2007. Third party companies can write excellent manuals that explain what to do and what your options are. Word 2007 help is very bad, the index doesn't find what I want - even when I know that there must be a way to do what I want. I can only think that either help is a very low priority or that Microsoft set out to write unhelp help. It is that bad.
At the top of the screen it says "non-commerical use" - a sign of how little Microsoft trusts the person who has paid for the product - it wants you to know all the time that it is watching - and it is.
My recommendation is stay with your current version of Word or to look at Open Office. Unless you have specialist needs both will fully cover your needs.

I must say that I DID (read underlined and bold) agree with the comments about it being a terrible system, until that is, I really practiced with it. At first it is very difficult to switch from a previous version of Office to this one, but, with a little practice and a lot of, initial, patience, I feel that the rewards of this system far outweigh the hassles!

I LOVE the new flexibility that has been added to the various parts of the system, and the way the 'Ribbon' (after initially being a bit frustrating due to my using 2003) puts all the tasks you are used to, and more, in easy access tabs. I know that there are those out there who want it to look like the 2003 system as that is the system they are used to (go do a search on the net and you'll find lots of free add-in downloads to do exactly that for you!!). And if you are one of those who likes to move all the icons around, or add your own, then you'll either need to learn how to write in XML, or just add them to the quicktask menu (no different than adding them to a toolbar in 2003!!).
And there is the fact that you can make template packages (Themes) that you can use across the board (Excel, PP, Word, Publisher, et al), the 'Live Preview' function to see what the formatting will look like in your document (it changes the formatting in the document as you hover over the options, not changing it until you click it), et. al.

And don't even get me started on the amazing capabilities of One-Note!! I have a PDA and can now chat away, draw diagrams and scribble notes while away from my computer, then have them import automatically when I cradle it.

Nearly coming to the end of the trial version I have got to say that the menu is not as intuative to everyone, and especially not me.
I prefer the old drop down menus, as it resembles a carefully ordered filing cabinet (you can't see anything, but you know exactly where it is)
This new menu, however, is more like a desk surface that has everything you could possibly need on it, grouped into sort-of-order and looking very cluttered. If you are a person who likes everything you need where you can see it, you may find the new menu intuative, but if you take ages looking for something amongst the clutter, you may find the new setup a complete hinderence. I think that microsoft should provide a free download to allow microsoft 2007 users to choose the interface that suits them, but I doubt that they will.

This is awful. It is slow, crashes all the time under Vista, hides all the simple buttons you were used to under Word2003 and makes writing documents a nightmare.
Some things simply don't work - merge documents and try to get renumbering to work or common headers when the documents were created using different templates. Tables of Contents? Fine if you understand hieroglyphics..but these things were meant to be easier in the future.
This is truly an awful step backwards. The new interface serves no purpose at all and the product is rubbish. I will go back to 2003. Try it first though or if you want a real mindblowing experience, try Powerpoint2007 where there is no underlying difference with 2003, just an interface that hides everything useful. These products are con tricks.

I've been trying to use this version of Word for a year now, and I just can't get on with it. I use Word 2003 at work (a lot) and 2007 at home (not quite as much). I consider myself to be computer literate, but I find Word 2007 unnecessarily complicated. Oh how I wish there was a way of switching off the ribbon and reverting to drop-down menus. And can anyone tell me why the scroll works in the opposite direction in Word 2007 to everything else on my computer? Is there a way to change it?
