    depends if you use outlook. i think it has the most improvements, with word second. there are a number of word features that are convenient for me.

    Re: Is it worth it?

    I did not install the Outlook upgrade - but will when we get the full product. I was hoping that MS would have put a bit of effort into some of the areas that I felt were lacking commonality. I felt that Powerpoint had some real improvements - but then to really take advantage you will need a lot of screen space...

    i don't use power point. (we banned it for most presentations because it was getting to be a time waster as people created fancy ones)

    Of course that is the problem with the presentation side of PowerPoint - what alot of people lose site of is that PowerPoint will do other tasks besides creating presentations....I guess like Office2000 I will have to run XP and let it grow on me....I will have to run all three versions of Office side by side to support the disperate versions in our organisation - aren't I lucky...

    More like the sadness of slow uptake...and the need to have people move forward...but then that would be progress! And we all know that we can't be having any of that now - can we!?!

    Is it worth it? (XP)

    I use Office97 and Office2000 extensivley in my role as Staff Development Trainer for our organisation - having just been given a copy of OfficeXP 30 dya trial from Microsoft I am wondering why anyone would change to it. Some of the features that I thought would have chnaged in an integrated environment have not and some of the changes seem purely cosmetic. I was hoping that something so simple as the option of selecting where you save your files to would be come the same process in all of the applicatiosn - but no it is still different...so much inconsistency across an integrated application is amazing...I found so many things that could have been changed/improved to make the applications similar for the user that it is shame they (MS) missed the trick!!!
