Welcome new release,
This review is from: Microsoft Office Student & Teacher Edition 2003 (CD-ROM)
I tried out Office 2003 on a friend#'s PC and ordered it for myself just now!! If there's a single reason to buy Office 2003, it's the new Outlook 2003. The screen-apperance and user interface are quite different, and makes e-mailing a different experience!! There are three different panes (for Outlook Today, mail and the mailbody) and the whole thing is nicely organised. I also found the new version a bit faster, especially the functionality that searches for messages.
At first glance, I didn't find major (visible) differences at least in Word 2003 and Excel 2003. But I know that XML-fans will be pleased with the new version(s).
