    Office versions - poll

    When it comes to Office versions, I'm always torn between thoughts like, the kids never use functionality they can't find in Wordpad, this looks expensive, this looks out of date, etc etc. I'd be interested in a cross-section of views on current versions and upgrade plans.

    We still have office 2003 installed on everything but are trying to encourage people to use Open Office (also installed on all computers here).

    We're currently on a mixture of 2003 and 2010.

    Generally all windows 7 PC's have 2k10 installed and the XP machines are still on 2k3, getting our secretary to switch has proved to be impossible so far though

    We have got 2003 around the school and in the IT office we have got 2010. We have had problems with profiles and things if we have staff using 2003 on one computer and 2010 on another. Not sure if other people are getting that problem.

    Office 2010 since the summer, before that we were on Office XP & 2003. We do also provide OpenOffice or LibreOffice for those who use it at home and still want to keep using it (me included).

    We Tried to push open office but it was the IT staff that kicked up the biggest fuss about it, oh and sims lack of using anything else (It may not support others i'm not sure but this was 18 months ago)
