Via Dave, Woody’s Watch has an excellent review of Office XP. Bottom line on the software, from this and other reviews, seems to be: Either it’s not that great an upgrade from Office 2000, or it’s not ready for prime time.
Oops: Thanks to an alert reader at Microsoft’s public relations firm. He noticed I’d originally headlined this item “Windows XP” — which is inarguably not ready, since it hasn’t been released yet — instead of the correct “Office XP” (about which there is a debate).
Once I get my home system operating properly again (major disaster after installing Windows 2000 Service Pack 2), I’ll be giving Office XP a workout myself.
