Office 2003

Mr. Johnson is skeptical of Office 2003. I understand his sentiments. However, I have been using the software for 3 months now and have been pleased the whole time. The Professional edition I obtained, not through the company but through the University, has Publisher, which was not included in the OfficeXP bundle. That's a plus. The best part to me, though, is the slick new preview pane in Outlook and the new mail notification, which displays the sender, subject, and the first line of every e-mail for about 5 seconds in the corner of your screen, above any other windows. It's a great feature.

Is Office 2003 worth hundreds of dollars if you have OfficeXP already? Of course not. But if you can get a cheap or Free legal copy, you ought to.
