    This change is so deeply, profoundly, unbelievably stupid that no one at microsoft should be making over 7.50 an hour.

    Seriously, what on earth are the people at Microsoft playing at? There was absolutely nothing wrong with the 2003 interface, it was perfect. A prime case of unnecessary change for change sake. Ridiculous! Thanks by the way

    I have purchased the Office upgrade from2003 to 2007 some time ago. The changes you’ve made are unbelievable. (This is NOT a compliment). I know my license allows me to make two installations: one on my primary computer(usually at work) and one on either a laptop or my home computer.
    I know I have my original box, but have not been able to locate it. I can’t see the serial number in the “About” in Word, but I do see the Product ID as 81605-903-7101192-65743. I want to install the 2007 Office on my home computer, and need to know if I can purchase replacement disks? And if so, how much?

    Just an update – Had to look for the version to see in SP 2 was on it. AGREE with the comments about how f)_cking stupid these changes are; disagree with the guy who said the people responsible for the changes should be making 7.50 per hour: they should have their previous salaries clawed back and be fired.
