There was a time when Microsoft Office Word's most recent incarnation was held as the Gold Standard of word-processing programs by most casual- and many professional-computer users. This "article of faith" was so ubiquitous that the pre-installed downgraded word-processing program, part of what is called Microsoft Works, was held in some contempt by most users and usually deleted right away and replaced with the most recent version of Word. No more.

Office Word 2007 is packed with things no one needs and wastes every user's time trying to figure it out.

Compared to the over written and unnecessarily complex Word 2007, the basic templates in Microsoft Works (version 8.5) are refreshingly appealing, simple to use and entirely adequate for most writing and word processing tasks.

Unlike the older versions of Word and the Works Word Processor, Office Word 2007 opens to seven separate template tabs - Each with its own full range of choices and each with own set of multiple and complex tool bars and options. These view pages include 1) Home, 2) Insert, 3) Page Layout, 4) References, 5) Mailings, 6) Review and 7) View. Without going into detail, suffice it to say that the truly necessary aspects of each were once contained on the two simple toolbars most commonly used in the earlier versions of Word, Editing and Navigation.

Navigating between these seven tabbed templates is like moving from room to room - or from house to house - to complete one meal or one conversation. It is simply a user-unfriendly, ill-conceived design. The multiplicity, design and inclusion of many useless options on the production default page ("Home") alone are distracting, delaying, complicated and yield no better product than the earlier, simpler versions.

I just got this and so far its been great. I have been using an older version of WordPerfect but needed to go to Word for work. In a review for the professional version, the reviewer stated that it probably is easier to learn this program if your new to Microsoft Word and it has been easy for me so far. I installed this version on both my home computer and work computer. My work computer had Office Works 2003 with Word and this had to be removed before Word 2007 could be installed. I didn't realize this and called Microsoft when it wouldn't install. I was amazed how quickly I got through and how helpful customer support was.

The program is great! They seemed to have been a bit more influenced by Apple and their software with the new 2007 Word. The toolbar is now about an inch thick and instead of scrolling down on "file" it's already up and it goes across the screen instead of down, which is smart because it doesn't block your view of your document. New features include: when you scroll over a premade font is changes the font you highlighted with out even having to click on it, this makes it easy to test which one you like.

The only thing that I found annoying, or I should say haven't found is the spell checker, and how to turn it off or on. It is set to be on, but sometimes I need to turn it off for job purposes and, well I can't find out how to.

Overall, it's all the same stuff, just much more user friendly-most of it. I don't regret one cent that I spent on it.

Word 2007 is a perfect example of why you shouldn't try to fix something that was never broken. Instead of improving Word, they made it ugly and just plain annoying. An experienced user can figure out how to use it...but the hunting and searching for functions that used to be a snap to find is a frustrating, time-consuming waste. The toolbar is now a "ribbon" cluttered with icons instead of quick, simple pull-down menus. I wish I'd done more research, and I'd have ordered an older version of Word with my new laptop. THIS SYSTEM SUCKS.

The license prevents you from using this product for any commercial use, even non-profit business use. Do not buy this product if you have any intention of ever using it to make money.

The way to create Headers/Footers in Word is illogical and with 20 years of software experience, it took 15 minutes to figure it out. MICROSOFT WORD is idiotic. I am going to wear a black arm band for WORDPERFECT. WORDPERFECT was so much better and SO MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY.

I recently ordered Microsoft Word and Home from Amazon. My intent was to review the product by clicking the "one click" order option. To my surprise, instead the item was ordered and sent without varification if that is what I wanted to do.

Actually, I wanted to order the Office package that includes other programs from Microsoft for only about $20 more, but Amazon would not allow me to change or cancel the order within one hour after I clicked. BE CAREFUL, AMAZON HAS DESIGNED THIS FEATURE SO YOU CAN'T UNDO IT !!!!
This is also a non returnable item !!!!
I am not happy with Amazon, although the software is excellent, I did not intend to order just the Word version and would have gladly paid the difference to get three more Microsoft programs.
Following the Amazon links for returning, they suggest I resell the item they hadn't even shipped yet!!!
I use many different on line ordering systems, but have never had a bad experience like this one.
