I don't use Microsoft Office products
I'm continuing to use LotusSuite and Works and I like them both and even though I'm in a minority, especially in terms of Lotus I will hang on to them as long as I can. I'm retired but continue to use the computer a lot and do some personal writing, use Quicken for financial matters and can export Quicken information to Lotus spreadsheet (etc.), I have some Lotus Approach database home files, too. If the time comes when I upgrade my computer or make some changes where I can no longer use the Lotus program, then I will have to consider Microsoft Office, I guess, but I have been hoping I could, perhaps, use it online, when needed, at a much lower price, without actually installing it. That does not seem to be the case. I'm probably dreaming any way because it probably would have a too long learning curve to use the way I'm suggesting. Interesting thread, anyway.
