Neither bad or incredible

First a little note. Service pack 1 [free update if not in the package already] corrects many issues including corruption.
Second a note to a user: There is something called backing up critical data. Use it. You can't totally blame Microsoft if you don't back up.
As for the product it has many new features - some which you'll probably never need. The Home & Student is a THREE PC license. This means you can install the same copy on up to 3 systems. The suite takes up plenty of disk sapce as well. So it will take time to install.
My only wish was to include Outlook 2007 in the package which is a far superior mail client than Windows (Live) Mail or Outlook Express.
