I've been using Office 2008 since Macworld. I kept Office 2004 in case of such bugs or errors or anything else critical every happening, but so far, I haven't had much trouble with it, and haven't had a need to go back to Office 2004. Note that I'm not really a so-called "power user" of the suite, and I have yet to use PowerPoint altogether, but for plain reports and writing, Word works as it should, and for keeping stats and making graphs in Excel, I haven't encountered any trouble either. As I used Entourage before, I'm actually really liking the new version as well more and more.<br><br>Yes, it is a Micro$oft application suite, and I do feel a little dirty every single time I use it; but so far, I have to give kudos to the Mac Business Team for their work on the new version. Just the fact that it's finally running native on Intel I believe was worth the upgrade price. There will be some bugs as there always are with ".0" releases, but they haven't bothered me so far. Office 2004 had at least two maintenence updates and bug fixes as well, if memory serves me well, if not more.<br><br><br>My Wii: 5721 8516 7937 9434 (PM me if you Wii)
Piper ,<br><br>I heard most of the problems are running it on older Macs - G4s and G5s which I have. The Intels are supposed to be much better and faster. Good to hear you like it. How's the styles and functionality ... good improvement or just a tweak ?<br>I'd appreciate your take.<br><br>David (OFI)
I'm running it on my G4 PB and on my G5 tower, and it's fine on both.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
