    Top 100 PC Reviewer

    I've got to start off by saying that I'm an Apple fanatic, and therefore have a general hatred towards anything branded with the Microsoft logo... but they have really excelled themselves with Office 2008.

    Having purchased iWork '08, I was disappointed by the lack of ability to save natively in the most popular formats (.doc/.docx), you have to go through a process of exporting the documents and they aren't always reproduced as they were saved, etc.

    So initially I decided to go with Office 2004, which granted, was good, because it was simplistic.

    But since then I have upgraded to Office 2008 and what a difference! Making documents look professional has never been easier. Recently I have been making a lot of flow diagrams integrated within my work and its unbelievably easy.

    Absolutely amazing product, and great value!

     Well done play.com

    I have had some trouble recently with orders from play.com, but they have really come up in my books regarding this product.

    I pre-ordered on the 16th, was posted on the 17th, and at 6.34am on the 18th Jan (official launch day) I was sitting at home with the product in my hand. Never had such fast internet service. WELL DONE.

    As for the product, I havent had a chance to fully explore it yet. However, from what I have seen, it is a vast improvement on the millions of floating boxes found in mac office 2004. Everything is more organised and working on it looks to be a breeze.

    I would recommend this product, even if there isn't anything drastically new. What is there is fine and is now much more easily accessible by a new UI and help menu
