First, this has nothing to do with any differences between Windows
Vista and Windows XP. You are apparently using Microsoft Office 2007
(which can run in either Windows Vista or Windows XP) and comparing it
to Office 2003 (or whatever version you used to run), and which can
also run under either Windows Vista or XP.
Note that *neither* Windows Vista nor Windows XP (nor any other
version of Windows) has ever come with any Word/Excel applications or
any other significant software. Microsoft Office is a separate
product, and not part of *any* version of Windows. You apparently
bought a computer in which the vendor bundled Office as part of the
package he sold you.
Second, Office 2007 does not have fewer features than older versions
of Office did. In fact, it essentially has all the same ones and
*more*. However, the interface has changed somewhat (it's designed to
be an improvement, but not everyone feels that way about it), and you
are not accustomed to it, and not finding things in their old familiar
You would probably find it useful to buy a book on Office 2007. Read
it and give yourself some time to learn more about how to use it
effectively. I can't promise you that you'll like it better than its
predecessors, but I can promise you that you certainly won't like it
as much if you don't learn how to use it.
