Upgrade to Microsoft Office 2007

October 3, 2007 at 8:41 am 3 comments

Question: Should I upgrade to Microsoft Office 2007? Is it a worthy upgrade? What should I know before I upgrade and is my computer capable to run it?

Answer: There wasn’t much difference between Microsoft Office 2000 and 2003/XP. The user interface was very similar and only slight improvements in functionality. However, Office 2007 is a big change. In fact I think it is the only Office suite that is worthy to upgrade. Personally, yes, I do think you should upgrade. But please make sure that you qualify for the system requirements. I personally recommend 1GB of RAM and a minimum of 10-15GB of space hard drive space.
However, if you are a happy with what you have and don’t need anything more, you don’t have to upgrade. But I do recommend you to take Office 2007 for a test drive. This test drive is not a trail and you do not have to download anything. The free test drive is an online version of Office 2007 in which you can learn and test out the features and what you can do. This is the best way to determine whether you should upgrade or not. Click HERE to take the test drive.

    With the new Office (the 2007) design, look & feel, Microsoft have made a giant leap. True that it takes time to get use to the new ribbon and to get around quickly.. But once you are familiar with it, you rock!

    We do a lot of researches on the web, and using Excel macros,
    we have improved our research speed in 30%. That huge!!

    Using OneNote have improved our research information control (nothing get lost now) and with the sharing files abilities, now everyone can contribute to the project.

    So to summary it all, we are more then happy with the tools that comes in the Office 2007.
    We looking forward to the new one… 😉

    With the SP2 support for open source files,
    our CRM improved since we don’t have to “fight”
    with our clients anymore 🙂

    The 2007 was a great investment with benefits to us
