    Can anyone compare Microsoft Mac Office X vs the Office 2004 version. I was given Mac Office X as a gift a while ago and haven't used it much. I was thinking of updating to Office 2004, since I will be using it a lot now.

    Any thoughts??

    Depends on what you are doing...
    Office X in my opinion is more user friendly but the 2004 version has better Autoformat/edit capabilitites
    There are alot of bells and whistles in the 2004 that the average user will never use. Save your money and use version X
    I have had few problems with X but 2004 has crashed on me more times than I can remember (especially prone to doing that in middle of essay writing when you have not saved in the last five min...)
