    I haven't tried it yet but pretty soon I have to make a decision on weather to go with Office 2010 or 2013. I had to replace my wife's desktop and went with Windows 8 on it. Still struggling with that so haven't even thought about what to go with as far as Office is concerned. So far I just hate Windows 8 but i figured i might as well dig into it now and get it over with.

    I'm not a big fan of the cloud. I prefer to keep our data private and on site. That could just be me but I am a bit of a doubting thomas when it comes to data security and the cloud.

      Running Office 2013. If there's a choice between 2013 and 2010, go for 2013. There's no reason not to.

      There's no reason to hate Windows 8 either, but that's another point.

      So far I'm loving my new computer at work with Win8, Office 2013 and Visual Studio 2012.

                A year ago I upgraded to Office 2010. I love it but it took a lot of time to learn (find the new locations for all the various commands) and to convert many of my macro driven spreadsheets. At the same time I was learning Windows 7. At the same time I was rebuilding my Homeseer setup on Windows XP Pro. At the same time I was trying to figure out how I could do everything on my new iPad3. At the same time I was learning z-wave and replacing some of my X10 stuff. It was a full time job!

                This year there will be Windows 8, Office 2013, HS3, and some new Apple stuff to put my arms around! If I go down this path, by the end of this year, I will have spent 2 years "upgrading". But, my home automation capabilities will be basically the same as they were at the beginning of 2010!!!!!

                Is it all "change for the sake of change"? Where is the return on investment? Is it a never ending cycle?

                  I'm sure I'll get the hang of this sooner or later, I hated Windows xp for the first month or so. It does seem that as a desktop Windows8 is convenient, at least to me, as some other versions. I have finally gotten it to boot right into the desktop where my wife will at least recognize some elements and I won't have to spend my entire day standing behind her.

                  It just going to take time I'm afraid.

                        software companies don't make money without new product offerings. I for one am tired playing the catchup game. heck I only upgraded to Win2k3 about a year and a half ago from Win2k. The compelling reason - .net framework 3.5.
                        My philosophy is if it isn't broken, the upgrades are kept to a minimum. I really have better things to do ...
