Should have stayed with Open Office,
This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 (3 Users, PC) (DVD-ROM)
I recently purchase a downloadable version of Office 2010. I wish now that I had stayed with the much cheaper and easier OPENOFFICE.
Outlook Express users should NOT buy this. There is no warning on the software but you WILL lose your OE spellchecker function!
You will then spend a long time either trying in vain to find a free 3rd-part Englsh UK spellchecker or manually load lots of English spellings into an American spellchecker. Either way, this discovery that in gaining Office 2010 I lose previous abilities has soured my experience of this new software.
For the thick end of a hundred quid, I don't expect to lose vital functions when getting new software.Particularly those that would require me to spend another hundred to get that functionallity back by purchasing Outlook.
