    Still Using OFFICE 2003 And XP.

    In Terms Of OFFICE, I Am A Consumer, Not A Producer.

    Besides Using OFFICE As A Middle Man For Document Displays, I Only Use WORD To Print Monthly Calendar Sheets I Create With The Calendar Template Wizard.

    Cheers.

    It is odd that the infographic did not include Frontpage, which was the best WYSIWYG html editor at the time and a major selling point for the suite.

    My favorite version was OfficeXP. I stubbornly held on to it even when 2007 and 2010 came out. It did not have the Ribbon UI, which is a plus, and it is much more aesthetically pleasing than the ugly 2003 interface. Limited support for newer document formats is a major issue, so I had to retire it for another suite (Softmaker Office).
