Similar to the earlier versions of Microsoft Office, the 2003 Microsoft Office is a package of software programs designed for various office work activities. The programs Excel, Word, Access, Outlook, OneNote, Visio, PowerPoint, InfoPath, FrontPage, Project, Publisher, and Live Meeting are included in the 2003 Microsoft Office. The 2003 version of Microsoft Office combines them all together under a sort of bulk rate price tag but each of these programs is also sold as a separate software product.
This version of Microsoft Office boasts a more complete package than any of the previous versions. It offers more programs, and the most up to date versions of the software available. Of course, the older versions of the Office package are still perfectly good. In fact, I’m still using the 2000 addition, and am perfectly happy with it.
You can be easily sucked into the hype over the 2003 Office deal only to discover that you didn’t really need the ‘improvements’. Like all software companies, Microsoft is update crazy. Microsoft newer versions represent an entire new product line for a minimal cost to them because they are basically the same thing as the older version.
The Microsoft Office concept is a huge success for the software giant. Just about every computers that major businesses own has a copy of 2003 Microsoft Office or some earlier version. You can do just about anything including writing form letters, tracking data, creating visual presentations, sending emails, creating graphical designs, combining text and graphical images, and arranging online meetings through 2003 Microsoft Office programs.
I use Excel, Word, and PowerPoint most of the time. Anyone who does any kind of work involving presentations, writing, and organizing data will rely heavily on these three programs. These three programs alone make the 2003 Microsoft Office package a good deal. Excel and Word are vital programs for personal use, even if you don’t work with computers because they make letter writing and tracking your finances much easier.
I highly recommend picking up 2003 Microsoft Office if you don’t have any Microsoft Office versions, and don’t even have Word, or Excel. It is available online from just about anyone, and any stores that carry computer software will have it as well. You probably don’t really need to get 2003 Microsoft Office if you already have an older Office version. You might want to get it if you do a lot of office work and are interested in the new programs that come with the package.
