    Downloading it now ( Want to try it out and see what it is like ) Hopefully I chose the right download as there were about 20 to choose from lol. I chose the ms pro 2007 plus which was the first in the list.

    Is it just me or is there a noticable delay between pressing a key and a character appearing on the screen when using Word or Outlook? It's not major but it's certainly there.

    I have been using it for a couple of days, 1stly backwards compatability is no issue, its fine with Office 2003. The PDF feature is brill! Just what its been missing, no delays, and activated fine this morning. So far so good.

    Re: Office 2007 (Beta 2)

    I have to say, I'm normally pretty skeptical about software upgrades and the like, but I do quite like this. The only downside for me is the speed factor :| does feel a bit choppy every now and again. But the new GUI is great, although personally I would of had a "custom" menu tab thing as well. So I could put the ones I use the most on there for easy access.

    Shame its so slow!

    Opens all my office 2000 documents fine. AND It doesn't automatically convert them to the new format (which is good) you have to conciously make the decision to convert them.

    It has a thing called "Compatibility Checker" so you can check inside the program how well it will work with previous versions of Office.

    Which is nice
