A big improvement...
on 19 July 2010
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.
