I’ve finally made the leap from Office 2003 to Office 2007. Ok, scratch “leap”, let’s say “stumble”.
Slow doesn’t even begin to cover it.
I avoided upgrading to XP for years (ran Windows 2000 with practically zero errors) and I hope to avoid VISTA for many years to come but, with Office, there’s that damn lack of backward compatibility which kind of makes it impossible… got a lot of spreadsheets going up and back so here I am.
Anyhoo, along with the 8 million how to and tips articles online, Kurt’s summary (Kurt Shintaku’s Blog: HOWTO: How to fix the pauses in Outlook 2007 or speed up Outlook 2007) does a pretty good job of helping identify the hoops you need to jump through in order to make Outlook run right.
Wouldn’t it have been nice if some at Microsoft had written it?
