What works for me? Office 2007 does! You might think I'm jumping the gun, but I found out about it this summer when I attended a workshop. Since I teach computers, among other things, I got to see a beta version. I also found out that you can download the beta version at www.microsoft.com, if you can't wait. Be warned that it doesn't have all the abilities the final product will have.
I blogged about this last month when I first learned about it, but wanted to share with the WFMW world. One of the really unique features that Word 2007 has is the ability to work with blogs. You can create your posts in Word and set up a relationship with your blog service to publish with a click in Word. Of course, you have to have Internet access at the time for the programs to communicate. You can't include pictures in the beta version, but that is supposed to be corrected for the final version that will be available in January 2007. When I tested it, I just went in to Blogger and added my pictures the regular way.
Office 2007 is much more intuitive than the older versions. I think most people will find it easier to use. It also allows you to add some really fun effects to photos without having to have a photo-editing software. It doesn't replace that software, but it gives those who don't have it some options.
