    When a 450 dollar program is written so piss poor that all features pretty much have to be turned off in order for it to come close to keeping up with a moderately speeded typer, then someone should be sued.

    you're right... but

    you're right, but...
    office v.x is a much better program than any other version of office seen on any os. In fact my uni is completely run on windows and i have to put up with office 2000. It's a relief to get home and use the warmness of the macbu's office v.x. The speed thing is still an issue... but i don't think it runs any slower than most os x programs. I think the speed issues are mostly due to the operating system. We should see an improvement with the introduction of X.2. Not only that but the MacBU@MS will be releasing an update for office to coiincide with the release of X.2. So never fear, help is on the way.
    Cheers.
    Tim.

    If Office v.X is the best on any platform
    then the other platforms must really suck. I can't wait until they put anti-aliasing in their text
    Then I would use it full on

    It is certainly better that Office XP and 2000 on the PC and way better that 2001; it is not fast enough yet, but this will come :)

    Office v.X may have it's problems but as others have already said; it is the best of any platform.
