Microsoft Office 2007 review

Price when reviewed

Schools, Colleges and Universities can purchase Office for some or all of their staff and students through the School or Campus agreements, or through the Academic versions of the Open or Select licences. All these programs give deep discounts on the usual retail prices. Click here.

Business users should be considering Standard, Small Business or Professional editions. The differences between these editions are Publisher, Access and Business Contact Manager. If you don’t need Access (and not many people do), then Small Business or Standard may suffice. However, if you have five or more users of Office in your organisation, you should be considering the Professional Plus or Enterprise editions. Professional Plus adds InfoPath and Communicator and the Enterprise edition adds OneNote and Groove. Don’t forget you can mix and match the suites and the individual applications, so it’s perfectly possible to buy Small Business edition and OneNote if that’s what you want.


The new user interface is bold and exciting and, because all the commands that are relevant are visible to you, it’s much easier to get the job done rather than playing hunt the command. Control-freaks and stick-in-the-muds may not immediately enjoy it so much, but if you spend a little time getting used to it it’s easy to make good-looking documents quickly. We really don’t think you’ll want to go back.
