    creating pdfs isnt really the issue. Its the right click, select all, convert all these files to pdf, or the right click, combine all these files to pdf, or the open PDF and manipulate the file functionality that is required, which AFAIK office cannot do.. and nor can any other free software.

    Office 2010 32 bit or 64 bit, lots of the addins and extentions don't work with the 64 bit version, even the Microsoft ones.

    Were upgrading to win 7, so if all goes to plan it will be deployed through that using WDS.

    32bit

    We are only using adobe pro 8, but I actually found a FAQ on the adobe site saying they dont support officice 2010 yet even with adobe pro 9.

    Office 2003 all the way here, if we are to change, the ICT teaching staff would like a years notice so they can re-write their worksheets. Plus we simply cannot afford it

    At some point they will have to change though, even if it is to open office or something. They don't still teach how to write with a quil pen in schools and at some point Office 2003 will be at that level.

    We have the very latest version of Open Office but you can imagine how much use that gets.

    The MS Volume site actually advises against using X64 versions and says strongly you use the X86 still.

    Yes, its quite sad actually, it links to a technet article which outlines all of the stuff that does not work with it like ActivSync. It really appears to have not had the support from the rest of Microsoft at this point and even at the MS events I have been to they have said the only real benifits are in excel with huge worksheets. I'm guessing that the next version of Office may come out with both 64bit support and support for 64 bit for at least the Microsoft extentions.

    Still with 2003, and it will be like that for a long time. Not in mood of training staff about the hidden features of 2007/10. Why did M$ had to change it so much??? They are bit like sims sometimes in the old days: with every updates all the menu locations changes

    We've already started with some office 2010 machines to allow staff to experience the new interface before we upgrade like the folks above to office 2010 and windows 7 during the summer.
    Domain is on 2k8R2 boxes and we're going to attempt an active directory domain rename....

    If you havn't seen them already and fancy a few snazzy add-ins:

    Ribbon Hero Basically an entire year 7 (or for *those* teachers) course in a game.
    pptPlex To make those dull powerpoint presentations more exciting
