There is absolutely zero reason to be hunting for options in Word 2007. Add
the options you use frequently on the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and
minimize the ribbon. Even better, if you establish the QAT and upgrade from
2007 to 2010, you can save the configuration files for the QAT so you do not
need to recreate them.

Also, there is a simple tool from Microsoft that shows the location of the
options in 2007 by navigating to them in 2003. I can dig up the link, if
needed.

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.
