Hey all I know there are a good number of computer and tech people here so I thought I would just share my experience with the new MS Office 2007. I downloaded the trial version from microsoft just for kicks and it's kinda cool, graphics and styling are a ripoff of Mac OS, but its a bit overdone and I couldn't find my regular task buttons or tools very easily. It also requires a sh!t load more system resources while running.

What I really wanted to share is that I decided to continue working on my master's thesis manuscript while "evaluating" the 2007 version. Files converted forward great, but back to my Offce 2003, not so much. So after frantically searching the terrible microsoft website I finally found the 2007 document converter and now I'm off and running again after ridding my machine of the 2007 crap. Phew! I ran a couple laps around the house to celebrate not losing my 100 page document and database.

I'm buying a new machine for myself in the next few months and get to find out how this whole Vista thing turns out too, oohhh goody. Thanks for listening folks. Carry on.

hmmm, too bad I couldnt find a pic of some half-dead, virus infested whore to properly portray what windows is like. I have absolutely no respect for a product that is actually sold defective. Keep on fightin though man, more power to you. ;)

You have time to look. I still can't find a picture of a horse high enough for you Mac owners to ride on.

Yeah. I've been running XP Pro for almost three years now. I have yet to get a single virus / security issue. It probably helps that I actually know what I'm doing, though. No complaints here.

You do, you just dont know it. I'd bet 500 bucks that i could find a security issue within 5 minutes if I sat down at your computer.

XP is great.........no way I'd trade a PC for a Mac. Unless I was delusional or something like that.

XP is alright, but a lot of work to maintain, a resource hog, and windows will always be the least secure OS as long as it is the most popular. I'm now in the process of switching from XP to linux, I've had enough of Microsoft.

good job Tony. I gave up on windows 7 years ago and have been using some form of unix or linux since. Fedora core 6 is real nice, the aiglx 3d interface kicks ass.

No way I'd trade a Mac for a PC. I'm definitely not delusional.

I'm running Kubuntu 6.1, and I like it so far. The only problem I've had is my wireless connection, which seems to be a problem with any Linux distro, and installing software is a real *****. Once I get those two figured out, I think I'll be very happy with Linux.

I am going to upgrade to Vista Business today.....hopefully nothing goes wrong. But for now I will keep my office 2003 until my work updates their version to 2007.

I haven't had a virus in at least 3 years or so either. And yes it does help to know what you're doing.

Apples operating system with it's graphics program are great. They have even ported it out to work with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. I wonder what Mac users are thinking about this move.

There are hackers who have been able to run the operating system on intel 915G chipset motherboard with a SATA drive using a Pentium 4 Prescott processor.
