bitten the bullet and upgraded from MS Office 2004 (for the Mac) to Office 2008

Well the much vaunted Office 2008 has turned into a damp squib for me. There have been two improvements:
  1. When replying to messages the fonts don't become so small that you can't read them

  2. I can check colleagues diaries when booking a meeting

And that's it!
Personally I am pretty disappointed and look forward to ditching Office in the next couple of weeks
