In addition to my recent purchase of Microsoft Outlook 2007 I have also purchased the Home and Student Edition of Office 2007. It contains the following Microsoft Office Products:
According to Microsoft the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 is the essential software suite for home computer users that enables you to quickly and easily create great-looking documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, and organize your notes and information in one place, making it easier and more enjoyable for you to get things done. The latest version features a new streamlined user interface that exposes commonly used commands, enhanced graphics, and formatting capabilities that enable you to create high-quality documents, plus a powerful note and information organization tool, and more reliability and security with the Document Inspector tool and improved automatic document recovery. With these enhancements, Office Home and Student 2007 makes it easier and more enjoyable for you to get tasks done at home.
I primarily purchased this edition of the Office Suite because I take most of my notes using OneNote and there are some really nice features in the new version. Key new features in OneNote 2007 according to Microsoft are:
- Enhanced notebook management
- Improved note-taking capabilities
- New ways to share your notes
- Better integration with Office programs
- Improved handwriting and Tablet PC support
- Expanded Help and Tips content
On the back of the Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition box, the following table provides a useful comparison of what products there are in each of the different Microsoft Office Suites. When I first received the software I wondered how many PC’s I could install it on and was pleased to see at the bottom of the table that it can be installed on three, which is the exact number I have at home.
One of the new features available in Word 2007 is the ability to create blog entries from within Word and then post them to your blog. Certainly this makes publishing any form of content much easier and will provide bloggers with a wider variety of publishing options. I’ve managed to get this working with my blogging software, ExpressionEngine, so I’ll be sure to write a blog entry on this in the future.· Email this article · Comments (0) · Permalink · Categories: Software, Microsoft, Office 2007
