    Thanks PhoneMan.

    In your opinion does Office 2013 offer any great advantage over Office 2010?

    I don't really know. I am retired so just use Word and Excel for home things. Nothing major.

    I bought 10 late enough in the game where I got a free upgrade to 13 when it was released. When I installed 13 it left 10 out there. I tend to use 10 more, I like the look and feel better. 13 is ok if you like the flattened "run over by a truck" and Metroized look. I don't see any advantages of one over the other. If I had to pay for the upgrade, I wouldn't and would stick with 10. Just my opinion, that and $2.50 will get ya a Starbucks.

    The answer to this would probably depend on who you are and what is your occupation. For "writer laymen" (like me), I don't really feel that any of the "improvements" since Office 2007, have had any impact on my writing skills (loll). Those add-ons and improvements are really only of value to professionals in the writing/accounting , etc, fields.

    I am running office 2013 pro, there are a few differences, you can open a pdf and edit it then save it back to a pdf
    there are many graphic options updates
    Some say they do not like it because it is very bright (this does not bother me)
    I find it better than office 2010 but if you can get it at a good price then upgrade otherwise hang in with it

    my version of office pro 2013 is differrent than some of the others- it has Click to Update Virtulaztion in it so it updates without using Windows update, it puts a red icon on the taskbar when there are updates and does them automatically

    .. that TBH is a bit of an understatement... to me it's like looking into headlights...

    to be fair, however, that is a superficial view and not being an ardent Office user there may be some technical niceties that may appeal to others..

    .. someone mention Starbucks?

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    I have since purchased it on disk from retail shop, and it's true it is brighter than 2013. However, though I'm still in the exploratory phase it does seem to have enhanced features that assist the work I do with Excel in particular, and PDF editing is a nice little bonus.

    I personally don't mind the bland look, but the brightness is a bit hard to take. Otherwise all OK. Cheers M
