Some ways to avoid some Word 2008 crashes
Authored by: OJB on May 11, '08 02:26:55AM

I really tried to use Office 2008 on my MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz dual core but its just so slow and horrible that today I gave up and went back to 2004. I also hate 2004 but I need Office occasionally to open files that Pages, Keynote, Numbers can't handle. I downloaded OpenOffice but haven't tested it yet. I doubt whether I will ever use Microsoft products again.

I have also gone back to Office 2004. I found that the new graphics handling is not very compatible with Windows (despite the claims to the contrary) and the lack of VBA is a real problem for our firm, as we use some VBA code a lot of the time to do Erlang C calculations.

I am concerned that Office on the Mac has taken a really big step backwards with this release.
