No Good if your Children Use 2003 At School,
This review is from: Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student Edition (3 User Licence) (PC) (Software)
I got a trial version of this (Fully working) and installed on my daughters computer, and my daughter went mad. They use 2003 at school and when she did her work at home to take into school it wouldn't work. Now you can use 2003 projects in 2007 version and the other way round, you can save your 2007 projects as 2003 projects, but somehow the School version would not open her projects correctly.
Some of the features were a lot nicer in the 2007 version and my daughter did get used to it eventually, but was happy when I put 2003 back on her computer.
Outlook is on the way out for live mail so that isn't a big thing to worry about.
I must admit I prefer open office, which is free. This program needs to be made cheaper, it just isn't worth more than £15, but then Bill Gates is on the greedy side isn't he!

when you use the 2007 version you can save it as a 03/97 document so its all the same

Yes that is what we did but for some reason it wouldn't open up with the school's version, like it did on the 2003 I had on my computer. That is why I mentioned it. It could have been a glitch, but to work in 2007 on my daughters computer, and 2003 on mine, but not on the School's one was a mystery. Another project she did was with Powerpoint and it didn't carry across to 2003 as it looked on 2007, another fault I found. We saved the project in both formats, 03 and 07.
I have edited my review to show this, as it was a bit misleading of me to miss it out....lol
Thank you for your comments, that was nice of you.
