"NORMAL ? Normal!!" Our family bought 'Office XP' just over 3 or 4 years
ago, and as far as I know XP was the last operating system from M$oft!!!
Now, if it was OFFICE 98 or OFFICE ME I'd understand...............
obviously M$oft want to sell more OFFICE programs AND you have to buy the
most expensive suite as the "home" one does NOT have OUTLOOK?
In VISTA - WORD works, EXCEL works, OUTLOOK works but just does not remember
passwords !! "Security problems", they say, well I've had none so far in the
past years with Office 2000 OR OfficeXP!! I'm sick of spending more and more
for a simple need - I'm looking elswhere for something simpler.
So, its either another >$300 to buy the new "OFFICE 2007" for a need to
remember passwords, or ditch Vista - this is the worst decision I have made,
asking for our new family computer to be Vista not XP!! .... and that was
extra $$$ to boot!!!
Between us all in our family we have 6 email accounts - MICRO$OFT YOU'VE GOT
TO BE JOKING!
