Hi Shaun, The thing is I had the 60 day trial of MS Office 2007, and I personally thought it sucked. I can't stand the new menu strip thing they added to replace the standard menu bar. Not only that MS has been adding a lot of junk to Office for the last 10 years like the not so friendly Office Assistant that loves to pop up and get in your way. I always have to kill that thing before using Word, Excel, and Acccess. The thing I like about Open Office and Sun Star Office is they are compatible with MS Office documents, but come with all the good features of the MS Offfice package, and leaves out the unnecessary garbage like MS Offfice Asssistant to name one. Oh, and did I mention that Sun Star Offfice is written in Java, and it can be installed and run on any OS that has a Java runtime and the Java Access Bridge. Mac OS comes with the Java access bridge pre-installed, the bridge can be compiled and installed on Ubuntu, and Windows and Jaws work with Star Offfice so it is not a bad option if you want to get away from MS Offfice.
