"Review should mention crippled Excel 2008"1.5 starson by heladas
Pros: Microsoft still willing to take our money
Cons: Excel 2008 less functional than Excel 2004
Summary: Seems to me than any review of Office 2008 is remiss if it doesn't mention that Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) support, which was present in Excel 2004, is absent from Excel 2008. For those of us who work with complicated spreadsheets, Excel 2008 is a huge step backwards. Excel 2004 and OpenOffice can both handle spreadsheets with VBA macros, but Excel 2008 cannot. For me, upgrading isn't an option.
