I still use office 2003 - I really like this version, I don't have the money to buy the newest, and personally I really hate the ribbon interface in the newer versions. When I use a friends computer and open Office, I am thankful that the old keyboard commands still work, otherwise I would be staring at the screen, looking like this :D :D

I suppose I will have to get over that, as I read that the next version of windows will have the ribbon interface as well.

2010 for sure. no reason to go to 2007 instead.

there are a lot of changes in 2010 over 2003 and 2007 that make it worth while.

Office 2010. You don't have to use the ribbon, the menu bar still exists. Interesting story behind the ribbon. Something like 90% of the most often requested Office features were already included. People just weren't finding them. The menu bar of a complex program has too many levels. Out of that concept grew the ribbon.

Although, while no one likes change (including me) even power users will soon learn to appreciate the ribbon. 2010 is more than the ribbon, it also has some great online integration, and is more secure from malware.

That statement nails it. Not too many like change, but some of us learn to appreciate it.

I didn't know that was the reasoning behind the ribbon. Now I feel a little better about it, I like features!
