Microsoft finally seems to have gotten the best word processing package out there right!
There were so many improvements that there's just no way to list them all. However, I will say that adding headers and footers has never been easier, and the new 'intuitive' spell-checker certainly helps with catching words that are spelled similarly now by taking a look at the whole paragraph instead of just the word. Therefore, those silly mistakes where you might have spelled there instead of their are easier to catch. The menu systems have been re-vamped entirely and designed with better ease of use in mind, which is great for new users. But it might not be as easily accepted for power users of previous generations of Office, mostly due to the fact that everything has basically been scrambled, renamed, and completely re-ordered. This can be quite frustrating for people who are used to having things the way they've always been and like it that way. But the good news is that most of the common keyboard shortcuts appeared to still be funcional and the same.
Also, in regards to the new menu that was renamed to 'the ribbon', I'd like to point out that I didn't find things too hard to find within the first use, and right-clicking on everything and clicking on things I'd never seen before finally brought me into the menus and options I've always been familiar with, even though they were designed and laid out differently.
I highly recommend this software package to anyone who needs more from a word processing package than just the simple paragraph here and there and basic household budgeting.
Lastly, I'd like to point out that there is a pdf plugin for this package since I feel that is a very important step forward and worth mentioning. It's from Microsoft, and it can be downloaded from their site should you choose to add it, eliminating the need for purchasing a separate software package to write decent pdf files. But I'd also like to add that I don't know why it simply wasn't included in the base install of the program like all the other Word Processing packages out there, including the free ones. I was rather disappointed about that unexplainable oversight, since it almost seems like a step backwards.

When I first tried this product I didn't think that I would like it at all. I was surprised to find that I was more than pleased with this Office suite. I didn't know about Onenote before this but am utilizing the program for many purposes.

I would reccommend this program for anyone looking for an exceptional suite for home use.

This program is really an essential program. It is improved over previous editions with "ribbons" of information. Basically all the functions that were hidden deep in drop down menus are now available in the forefront. Great!

After using Office 2000, it took me a while to get used to it, but I now find the newer functions easy to navigate.

I really like it. This is the second one I have purchased. I have Office Pro for business, and now use the home and student for home. The three user key is great since we are working on 3 computers. Amazon was my best price for this new boxed program.

I was looking for the best price for this software and even after adding the shipping costs the final price was considerably lower than local prices. Delivery was fast and I am enjoying the product.

Not only was the software GREAT but the delivery was super fast and delivered right to my door. For me, living in rural Nova Scotia, I was very impressed. Thanks!

...plus free shipping. What's not to like? (The price I got was a sale price: $125, which no one else matched.)
