"If the shoe fits..."3.0 starson
Summary: This product is great for its target audience; its just a matter of determining whether you fit in that category or not. In grammar school, I used only MS Word; in high school, I learned Excel and Powerpoint. Now that I'm in college, I used these products a good amount. It is worth noting that the bundled spreadsheet and presentation programs do a fair amount of what Excel and Powerpoint do, but its just not enough. I like to think that the needs of an average K-12 student are increasing in terms of software, and a full office suite is a definate necessity for college students. This product represents a slight understanding of this at Microsoft, however, this product does not stand up to OpenOffice and other free competitors. If you're comfortable with the limited features go out and buy it. I just can't see how the shoe could fit for many students like myself.
