As for office 07 - well I have to say the ribbon put me off. I know lots that like it and get along really well with it, but I'm not one of them. My personal view is that Microsoft should've at least provided some form of backwards compatability if they want people to migrate to it - whacking users in the face with a completely new interface on a product that's mostly stayed the same for well over a decade just isn't on, especially when it's one used by millions in business critical environments.
I daresay I'll upgrade eventually, but I see no reason to move on from 2003 as of now.
