Excerpt: Change is not always a welcome event especially when it involves something you use every day like Office 2003 was. Office 2007's new ribbon menu bar greatly changed the how we find and get done what we need to get done in our documents, spreadsheets, presentations and such. One of the good things about this new ribbon is that it allows you to add and make modifications.
Conclusion: The beta of Microsoft Office Accounting 2007 is a giant leap forward; I especially like the eBay and PayPal integration, but the payroll system still needs some work.
Pros: Effective setup. Solid tools for small-biz accounting. Microsoft Office-like interface and good integration with Office applications. Good cash-flow management. Detailed contact records. PayPal, eBay integration. Free (for now).
Cons: Payroll clunky unless you use ADP for processing. Supports fewer banks than QuickBooks. Too few customized reports. Claimed RAM requirement is 512MB, but 1GB is more realistic. Currency support requires too much user input.
