    @StewartKnight: I think everybody was thinking the same thing... 'the teachers will hate Office 2007 so what's the point in upgrading?'

    No 'classic mode' so there's no menu bar, the file menu has been replaced by what can only be descibed as a 'blob' and you have the new tass-orientated 'ribbon'.

    If you are having issues, try StarOffice. If your SMT don't want to go with a free alternative that will save them hundreds of pounds... wait until after the coursework is handed in and break Office, blame it on MS and say that you will install SatrOffice as a quick fix while you resolve the issues.

    Not if you place your default user profile in the NETLOGON share (the first place Windows looks for it before searching locally).
