Death of a Legend

The Bride: And what, pray tell, is the five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique?

Bill: Quite simply, the deadliest blow in all of martial arts. He hits you with his fingertips at five different pressure points on your body. And then he lets you walk away. But after you've taken five steps, your heart explodes inside your body, and you fall to the floor, dead.


Say goodbye to Office 2003, Microsoft tells PC builders

Stephen Donohoe

It hurts me to admit it but......

I like Office 2007! I've been through all the previous Office suites in various corporate roles but became a dedicated fan of Open Office a couple of years ago - I particularly liked the online support and the ability to convert docs to .pdf format.

However, I bought Office 2007 a few months ago and, once I got used to it, which took about a month if I'm honest, I really really think it's a great product :-0. I hate Microsoft but for my purposes - big spreadsheets & fancy powerpoint presentations - it is the best thing I've seen. Not worth £350 though. I still use Open Office on my Linux machine & it's still great, but Office 2007 is better IMHO.

It's just not cool to admit it, is it?
