Fischer Price on Office 2004,
This review is from: Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Home & Student Edition [Old Version] (Software)
Every new Microsoft product has to add some flash or dumb it down. There is not a major improvement in the product ......it is just harder to get used to the new layout and format. First thing you will want to do is go into each programs preference file and configure the save to .doc , .xls , .ppt . If not, the default save adds an x to the end (.docx etc.........the new open xml format. Unless the recipient of a file has a new version of office (2007 pc or 2008 mac) and if the stand alone converter has not been downloaded and installed, the new format file will not open on the computer. This will be the case for all PC and Mac versions prior to 2007 and 2008.
