I got Office 2003 beta because my roomate got 6 copies from winning something in his MSDN group. So much nicer then 2002 or 2000. I use outlook for my palm, and my email.

But that ended Nov 31st, and i reformatted before that, so i'm back on 2002. My school computer store said they wouldn't have it for a year atleast...

I actually have Office 2003 Pro, nice. Outlook probably saw the biggest improvments. As far as the free office, star office, or whatever office, I downloaded it and it never ran. Always pooped out when the computer rebooted, so I uninstalled it, and sighed...

I tried StarOffice, and didn't like it at all. OpenOffice has run great for the last 3 or 4 upgrades.
