Summary: I was concerned about installing this software on my new laptop, which is running Windows 7, 64-bit. It does not specifically say it is designed for this platform, so I was a bit leery. Other reviewers indicated they had no issues with Win 7 32-bit, but at the time there was no one reviewing this that had the 64-bit version. I'm happy to report I had no issues with installation and the software works fine. My only struggle was getting it registered.
"Messy "New Look" at the expense of Efficiency - Run!!"
1 March 2010
Pros: I hate it. There is absolutely NOTHING about this that is improved; each change is made at the expense of efficiency and user-friendliness. The overall look is highly confusing, and everthing is awash in baby blue - which adds to the messiness.
Cons: In an attempt to come up with something that could be called "new" & thereby tempt buyers, Microsoft produced terribly messy applications which destroy rather than enhance efficiency. Disastrous - slow & difficult to navigate (where IS everything
Summary: Comments about Microsoft Office OneNote 2007: When purchasing on-lin through Google, it was not in the product descriptions that this was for new PC's with the software already loaded. This is strictly a purchase of an un-lock code. I was looking for4 the software to license. Not an un-lock code.
Summary: The Microsoft Office Professional 2007 software package arrived on time to the prescribed address. Installation of the software into my PC which is running Windows 7 was a very simple matter. This version of Microsoft Office is a replacement for my existing Microsoft Office 2003. As expected the new 2007 version has considerably more features and is taking me some time to make the adjustments. However the effort is proving to be very worthwhile.
Summary: As mentioned in the other reviews, you're only getting the disc and product key. Both appear to be completely legitimate, and the disc has all of the fancy holographic frills, with certain patterns that can only be seen at limited viewing angles. Office Standard 2007 installed and activated perfectly, and I have no need for more software boxes, so this all worked out great!
