Summary: Publisher is one of the top rated publishing softwares. One of the others is Serif. I downloaded a free trial version of Serif. The Serif software may have more bells and whistles, but it was not intuitive to use at all. Publisher will get the job done just fine as long as you don't want anything ultra fancy. It will be easy to learn especially if you use MS Word.
Summary: Some of the early ratings for this showed some very disappointed users but I think they must have gotten out a lot of the bugs. I have found it works very well on my Windows 7 Dell laptop. Clear presentation and some efficient improvements - small things like the delete option right in the email inbox list, so you don't have to move to the header and back down to sort through keepers and jettison the rest.
Summary: My only quibble is a little trouble getting it to recognize some imported fonts but this is an easy software to work with - especially for MS users. It's not as sophisticated as some of the Adobe products but it is much easier to just dive in and use. I recommend it as worth the money if you want to make your documents punchier without hiring out to an actual graphic designer with the fancy graphics software.
Summary: This product works well. Great not only for email, but for contacts and keeping a schedule. Microsoft has changed it's policy regarding its licensing, you can now move office products once every 90 days.
