Bought Microsoft Office 2007 program – big change

Microsoft Office 2007 is a big change from the existing series. I like it, but at the same time I feel I have to learn the entire program all over again. Now that I have Excel at home I have NO EXCUSE not to keep up with my excel practicing stock option put and calls. I’m actually in a computer science class that is on advanced excel and access 2007. I hope I learn a lot and I’m working on getting an A. Going into my masters program in management I want to make sure my GPA this time around is plenty high enough to get in. I could definitely see Microsoft Office 2007 boosting in new revenue for Microsoft’s stock (MSFT). Funny I say this because I actually bought the entire Microsoft Office 2007 advanced applications off a download site where you just purchase the program. I only paid $250. The actual cost such at Best Buy would be around $600-800. One of my computer programmer friends these download sites are out of China basically bootwaring the program with illegal data and actually use my data to spy? I’ve used these straight download sites before and the programs have had no errors or problems. So is it a replicate illegal China download site or a real company that does pay off Microsoft some type of royalty? Good question. For now I have my receipt showng I paid for the full program as a downloadable file.

  1. What’s wrong with using OpenOffice’s Calc (excel version)? It performs most the same functions though I only use it for basic budgeting. I know other bloggers like using Google Docs/spreadsheets. And they’re free. =)
