"Not worth the security risks!"0.5 starson by Microsoft_Facts
Pros: None. I tried to think of one, really, read full opinion.
Cons: Insucure, too exspensive, incompatibilities, lackluster performance.
Summary: Up until recently there were no document macro viruses, only Microsoft Office document macro viruses. Like many technologies only Microsoft products put consumers at risk. There was only _one_ other macro virus in Open Office last year. One. There are thousands of Microsoft viruses and security issues with Microsoft's office. The bottom line; if security of your PC or network matters at all, Microsoft Office is a non-starter. Look to other commercial alternatives such as Corel Office, and be sure to evaluate free alternatives such as Open Office. They all do what 99.99% of office users need. Write a letter, work a spreadsheet, create a presentation, all with formatting features, spell checking and thesaurus. Any product other than MS Office will save you money, run faster with less code bloat, as well as create compatible files with other products.
