Word 2007 is way better than Word 2003. If nothing else it’s prettier. And, I have my word 2007 ideally set up for distraction free writing - minimize the taskbar, minimize the ribbon (yay windows!), write in draft view and it’s pretty much just me and the screen. The thing is, I’m fiending all my student’s 2010. It looks basically the same (but prettier!). Customizing the ribbon doesn’t seem that helpful since I already customize by quick access toolbar up top. I don’t need to immediately upload/email/blog what I write (and dropbox/gmail/blogger seem to be taking care of me if I do). Word’s stupid freakin’ reference manager will never reach the point of being helpful – that’d alone be worth the upgrade. So basically I can’t come up with any good reason to get it. But, I want it. For teacher’s/student’s it’s $100.
Anyone know a good reason to drop the cash?
