I like 2003, it has nice colors and a more modern appearance than xp/2000. I don't like office 2007 because of the ribbon, that thing is an awful piece of crap imo.

2007 :) The layout is just so logical in me, much more than the old interface, and it's so quick and easy to find everything once you're used to it. For old versions, 97's pretty impressive for how small it is given its featureset, while 2000 is probably the best one for actual use as it's the oldest to still receive updates (including the important one to allow it to deal with the new 2007 file formats), yet still runs on Windows 95/NT 4 upwards, and is really the newest one that is affordable if you want to be legit.

Office 2000 was the only one I've ever used... So it gets my vote.

I'm using OpenOffice these days for my word processing needs. It's free (compared to paying Microsoft 150 dollars for Office 2007 Home and Student Edition.) Who pays 150 dollars for a mere word processor and spreadsheet?

Office XP!

It can do everything 2003/2007 can do like the nice tables and saving as docx (pretty funny when it says I should save in a newer format when using docx) and it looks nicer than 2003 and 2007.

This is of course a matter of opinion, Office 97 is my second choice.

Office 4. It reminds me of the days when a 486 was upper-midrange, and a Pentium was the fastest available. It reminds me of the days, where 16MB of RAM was still enough for anyone, and DOOM was new.
But I use OpenOffice nowadays.

I started with Office 97, then Office 2000 and since it's released I'm using Office 2003. I think its the easiest version ... for me

Office 2007 is to complicated for me

I don't use Office. If I'd be forced to use it, it would be 6/95, before Clippy appeared.

MS Office is pretty good though, come on - I think it's worth more than $20, although for a home user who isn't making money from using it like a business does it's not worth anywhere near as much as MS charge for it, given that their prices are unaffordable to most (except the "Home and Student" edition, which doesn't even come with Outlook).

Noone said that Office was particularly bad, and that ridicolous Office assistant can fortunately be disabled forever. IMHO, it is a good and helpful piece of software, but way too expensive for the home user. This is one of the reasons I don't use it, the other(s) being kinda similar to ppc_digger's.

It was just the way he said that, it suggested to me that he didn't think it was good enough to be worth even $20.

Wow, they've just ripped off the MS Office 2003 interface almost exactly! Looking at those screenshots briefly you could think it was MS Office!

I'm torn between 2003 (fast, backwards compatibility) and 2007 (so pretty) :)

I'm taking an Statistical/Quantitative Methods class right now. It's a once-a-week class in a computer lab that lasts for 4.5 hours and we just use Excel the entire time. I'm the only one who brings a laptop and do that so I can become accustomed to Excel 2007 rather than the use the 2003 on the school computers.

I have to say Excel 2007 is one of the most well-developed programs I've EVER used. We follow the professor along and the intuitiveness of 2007 just allows me to be no more than a breath behind him while the rest of the class struggles to keep up. Of course they're all pretty much new to Excel, but 2007 is so different than 2003 that I have to just rely on intuition to find everything.

Oh yeah, and it's GORGEOUS. :D
