Features, Office Ars reviews Office:Mac 2008, and concludes: "Perhaps the best thing that can be said about software that one uses in the course of working is that even if it doesn't make the work fun, it doesn't make it any worse, and that's certainly the story with Office 2008. Those spreadsheets, presentations and software reviews won't write themselves, but now it's a deal easier to make them look like they did. That it does that in just the way you'd want a great Macintosh program to behave is good news for Office workers."

DocPain: First of all referring Microsoft as MICROS~1 etc shows your bias against them so your views really hold much lower credibility.

As far as looks of the document is concerned, my point is that if you make the exact same document in Word 2003 and then in Word 2007 (i.e. by doing the same things like same headings, same title etc), the document word 2007 produces is far better due to it's ability to do better layout, much more aesthetic fonts etc.

As a side note, Open office produces really crappy looking documents.
