"Love the ribbon UI, but super slow to load."
Ribbon UI makes MS Word 2010 a joy to use and navigate
Makes getting your work typed up quick and easy
Slow loading of program
Huge size when the entire office suite is installed
Does not fit in the Windows XP theme (more suited for Vista/7)
Following in the tradition of Microsoft Office in years past, Word is an easy program to learn and use, and the Ribbon UI makes it much easier. Things are faster to find and more tools are at your fingertips. The program is slow to load though, especially on Windows XP, and the theme of it does not work well at all in XP, looks very clunky. The size of the office suite is enormous! The price is even more outrageous. If you want a full office suite, try out something free like OpenOffice.org.
