I've been using Office 2007 for over a year with work, on a Windows 7 platform but at home, I still have Windows XP Professional and Office 2003. I have the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 7 and Office Professional 2007 but can't decide if I should. I like 2003. All the menus are where they are supposed to be. There is no hunting around for 10 minutes to do tasks that are semi-instinctual motion right now. The main issue for most is receiving a 2007 or newer version file, but I have a add-on that converts these 2007 and newer files to 2003. So far, I have seen no issues with that.

If I needed more experience with the 2007 products, I'd say the switch is reasonable to get more in tune with the newer applications, but I use the 2007 version on a daily basis.

Anyone have any real solid reasons for leaving XP and 2003 for the world of 7 and 2007?

BTW, the PC is a ThinkPad T61 which is a little over 4 years old and should be capable of handling the change.
