i generally am for upgrading
but office xp so far has seemed like crap in my experience
it seems to be dumbed down quite a bit, so I guess thats good for unexperienced users.. but when trying to do more advanced projects, we have had lots of issues with lockups..
2000 hasnt given us any problems, so in my opinion, its best to stay with it for now

I upgraded because it was a free upgrade for me, I don't think it's worth paying for if you're already running office 2000.

Office XP is not worth an upgrade from 2000. Something, which I should have realized...

The only benefit so far I've found... Outlook 2002 supports hotmail.

I agree. Although there are some benefits to the newer Access, I haven't needed them yet.

You LIKE getting all that junk mail in Outlook? (Even with filters, hotmail gets so much junk - at least my account does)
