Of course I hope very much that one day i could say that I don't need MS Office any more. But until that time I an happy for all the improvements the Mac-Girls and -Boys at MS are implementing.

I get it for $10 due to our enterprise agreement and the home use program?

I realize it's the crack dealer sales ploy - but what the heck, I'm not getting away from Office any time soon so I might as well use it at home too!

I can't say that I've seen that deal before! The nicer, more efficient UI in Office is probably worth paying the extra $10!

I agree that I'd want 3 separate programs. But what I don't understand is in this new version of Outlook, will you have your email, calendar and contacts all in one window? At work, we use Outlook 2007 and you can ACCESS all three from Outlook, but I can't find a way to VIEW all three in one window. I don't know why I'd want all that info on one screen anyway. My point however, is that if you have all 3 in one program, but still can only view one at a time, what is the difference between that and having 3 separate programs?

Wow, I suddenly feel compelled to go out and buy this product because young 20 somethings like myself designed and built it.

Such a lackluster upgrade is one of the best things that's happened in years - for OpenOffice.

We're all free to have our own opinions, but you literally couldn't give me a port like OpenOffice for free.

Who exactly is it that Microsoft thinks they are marketing to? Or, is it truly the case that no one over 25, and who won't be equally a turn-on to teenage girls and guys, is doing product development in the company?

Im hoping Apple adds this to 10.7, after all they are already tied together in the OS and through MobileMe.

I totally agree. 3 separate apps to check mail, calendar and address book is ridiculous in the year 2010.

I completely agree!

Sure the ribbon sucks. But we can turn it off and hopefully get back to work with the same interface as we have now.

Now the important stuff: will it have VBA back. And hopefully it'll have .NET/C# ability as well for macros.
