Comment on Office for Mac Home and Student Edition

What a terrible disappointment! Never before since 1984 have I switched back to an older software version as I did this time. After installing Office 2008 back in February 2008, I tried to live with its flaws. Among the worst are the data losses and more recently (since the SP 1 update) the inability to open automatically (by double clicking) other Office documents received via email. I got tired of having to add back the data lost in the Excel forms I use at work. I got tired of having to go to File > Open and select a document I had received and then have to save it again so that next time I could double click it to open it.

Office 2008 reminds me of another bad Office edition, the infamous version 6!
