Information Week: Microsoft Readies New Office Beta

My spin: Remember, most users only use about 10% of the features in their bloated word processors. Unless you are a power user, be cautious about upgrading. If all you want to do is write a few letters – why invest in spending the money on a new Word / Office upgrade. On the other hand DO take a look at what new features it offers, and features in the current version that you are NOT using to see what you are missing and how you can do more with the tech tools you have!

Next version of productivity suite is likely to be known as Office 2003 when it enters its second beta next month.
