What are the trade-offs in upgrading from MS Office 2003 to 2010?Locked
All I’ve seen about this upgrade has been comparing functionality, features, appeal, etc.
I’m using Windows XP-SP3. I have 2 gig of RAM on a 1.73GHz Centrino laptop. This is barely sufficient to my needs in terms of speed and responsiveness.
So I need to know:
1. Will Office 2010 run faster, slower, or about the same as 2003 does on my machine?
2. Will the presence of Office 2010 slow down (compared to 2003) other applications on my machine even if 2010 is not open?
3. Will an open window of an Office 2010 application have more of less impact than 2003 on other applications in use when it is open in the background?
4. Are there any functionalities of Office 2003 that will be lost if I migrate to Office 2010?
And other questions of a similar ilk that you might think of.
