I feel kind of like a traitor saying it, but I've decided that as long as you have a powerful enough computer to run it, MS Word 2007 might be okay. I've been using 03 since it came out, and it has long been my favorite, but when I needed a new computer recently 07 was my only option.
That "if" above is a big iff, though (iff is shorthand for "if and only if," for those of you not familiar). Vista and 07 are huge memory hogs. I waited until 4G computers were cheap enough to be reasonable before I considered "upgrading" to Vista. Oh, and I waited until my "upgrade" includes a free upgrade to Windows 7 when it comes out... though we'll see what folks think of 7, come that day.
And no, I do not want to switch to Mac or Linux. Microsoft may be a Big Evil Corporation, but it's my big evil corporation. Kthxbye.
Besides, my point is, 07 and I might get along after all.
