Colleagues recently forced me to install Office 2010. It's a nightmare, I wouldn't even call it a release version. Apart from horribly stupid and incorrect error messages, they force you practically to use the mouse, so Repetitive Stress Injury is programmed. Microsoft at its worst :icon13:

Me too, I don't like the metro interface of Office 2007 & Office 2010. The previous versions of Office, 2000 and 2003 are much more easy to use.

Well, you could use Libre/Open Office (free), or Softmaker Office (commercial, cheaper than MS Office)

Do you mean the Ribbon bar ? This is no Metro at all...
I have no problems with the Ribbon bar. If you play a little bit with it you'll get quickly ease into it.
But I must confess that I never used Ms Office before 2oo7...

SoftMaker Office 2oo8 is free for use.

Hi Greenhorn,

Sorry for confusing the two terms. You are right, it should be the ribbon bar.

Hi,

for special tasks - for example high quality documentations - one can use the public domain TEX and LATEX by Donald Knuth and Laslie Lamport. That's an excellent alternative.

If somebody is missing in Office 2oo7/2o1o some of the old menu commands, here they are: c't Toolbox
This file will integrate most of the old commands into the Ribbon bar by creating a new tab "Toolbox".
