I like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Outlook. But the trouble with OOo is there ain't a Outlook or Publisher. I know XP has its own Outlook Express. The Office version is better.
Which puts me in a pickle. I have Office 2003 which cost $699 because it was the only version that had publisher in it. The basic has Word, Excel, Outlook. Standard has Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint. Small Business is for small busines only but has Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, And professional which i have has all including Access which isn't installed as with Powerpoint not installed either. I only have Word, Excel, Publisher and Outlook installed. So i payed $699 for the whole suite but only using 4 programs, its like being ripped off. I'm not going to purchase any more Office suites as too expensive. I did previously had office 2000 standard which had Word, Excel, Outlook and seperate purchase of Publisher which cost a total of $450. I was told that office 2000 doesn't work on XP because of the new look. But i could have tried i suppose because i don't notice much difference between them appart from the appearance.
