Microsoft's Office Standard 2007 is the version that includes the programs most people will be looking for in an office suite: Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook. While Microsoft did make some improvements, many changes have users frustrated and mad.

Pros

+ Standard version includes the 4 programs you actually want!
+ Like most new MS suites, allows for easier transfer between machines
+ Allows you to use on your home desktop AND your laptop!! Huge plus!!
+ New open document format based on xml - good for techies
+ Alternatively, you can still use the doc format you know and love
+ Excel now supports larger documents with more fields!
+ Cool new Powerpoint extras
+ Once you do overcome the learning curve, design has some plusse
+ Preloaded with Vista OEM computers, so install is MUCH faster than old version

Cons

- A list price of $400 means many will forgo Outlook and buy Home & Student suite for MUCH LESS
- The ribbon puts things in WEIRD places
- Microsoft disabled classic menus so you can't find stuff ... ARGH!!!
- Startup times seem a little slower ... why????
- Strangely slow performance with Word

The general hatred for the ribbon is well known. Microsoft Word and Excel have drawn the most heat. It took everybody years to learn those nested menus and hard to find functions. Now they are all moved!!!!

Actually, the ribbon wouldn't be so bad if you could have your regular old classic menus above it. Once you learn the ribbon, there's some logic to the way things have been relocated. Still, this was a huge blunder and I wonder if MS will back track on that.

This guy also includes Outlook, which is a MUST for me since I have to use Outlook on my work PC.

The product requires activation, which includes sending machine identification information to Microsoft.

The good news is that the Office Standard license allows installation on both a desktop system and a laptop. It also allows you to transfer the license to new systems, over time.

From the license: "Before you use the software under a license, you must assign that license to one device. ... You may install another copy on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device. ... You may reassign the license to a different device any number of times, but not more than one time every 90 days."

I would like to know which genius came up with this little gem. This must be the worst "update" of a software in history.

As I was forced to buy a new computer, I was "blessed" with this malady of a software.

Despite the appealing first impression - the new Office presents itself with a modern and colorful layout, the debilitating flaws become all too quickly obvious once one starts to work with it.

The new feature, the Ribbon, is one of those things that look good only on paper. (like those state-of-the-art kitchen which are designed by very smart men, designers, engineers... but alas no cooks...) If you, like me, are one of those frequent users who work with the software on a daily basis, are very familiar with all its features and value the option of customizing your settings and toolbars in order to streamline (=timesaving) your individual processes, you are in for a major disappointment. The Ribbon is static - no customizing. Microsoft allegedly surveyed thousands of users and put the most popular features in so-called groups on this Ribbon. Great, if you are one of those surveyed users - a nightmare, if you were taking full advantage of individualizing (=streamlining) features. It is sort of like having a closet full of nice clothes, and then a survey shows that "gray goes with everything" and we are all stuck with the same gray clothes.

Instead of doing my work, I spent hours searching for features that are now hidden, moved, or simply do not exist anymore. I have been cursing at my screen, for hours. And I am getting more and more irritated as I am looking at my work which wants to be done.

Now, don't get me wrong, I am all for innovation, but not for innovation's sake.

It appears what happened was someone sitting around the old Microsoft Offices said "Hey, I got a great idea! Let's make Office look really pretty! We may have to take away some of the functionality, but hey, it will look great!" My problem is I need tools such as a workhorse spreadsheet program, a powerful word processor, a flexible database, and stunning presentation program to successfully complete my job. Upon purchasing Office 2007, I was expecting expanded features and functions to assist me in doing so, just like every update had previously provided me. Instead I found myself with a redesigned interface (which takes time to learn) and an actual reduction of features from Office 2003 (which Microsoft freely admits occurred, because they couldn't fit a few of the features into the new interface). So what you are in fact spending your hard earned money on is a group of programs designed to look really good (with neato 3D graphics, wow!), but at the expense of taking away your tools rather than expanding them.

Waste of money? Um, yeah.

I recommend waiting until Microsoft finally comes to the realization that how the software looks is truly the least of my concerns because I have work to do.
