    "Fairly accurate review but didn't mention all the bugs."

    December 6, 2012  |   By pajamas18

    Pros

    As per above

    I have to say Auto recovery function in the software is very effective after a crash when you haven't saved your work. As I detail below I have found the office suite software to be very buggy, testing it on several computers. I have become obsessive saving my documents. However in the instances where I haven't saved and experience a crash autosave almost always brings up my work right where I left it.

    Cons

    Extremely buggy. I have run the software on several computers and have found way too many bugs. The original release should have been called a Beta. The software updates have improved the functionality so obviously Microsoft is aware of the problem. But the fixes come too slow and there are still lot's of bugs left. This is the buggiest software I have ever used.

    A couple of the most glaring examples
    search still doesn't work
    computer freezes when it goes to sleep and XL or Word are running
    frequent crashes of the program

    Summary

    Extremely, Extremely, buggy. Most Beta releases are more reliable than the current release of this software. Wish there was another realistic word processing alternative and that I could get my money back.
