Well, I just got MS Windows SERVER 2003 installed and I am actually using it right now.

Regular windows installation, easy. Very clean. Very professional looking. So far so good.

Next is MS Office 2003 then MS Outlook 2003.

I will give alittle update after each installation.

MS Office 2003 installed. Flawless. Very sleek, colorful, but not overboard. Easy installation.

MS Outlook 2003 installed. Also, very nice. Different layout. Instead of window panes vertical, they are horizontal, ie. side-by-side. Also, colorful, but once again, not over board. Easy installation.

Well, I just spent the last couple of hours playing with office and I have to say that I am peasently suprised.

Even though it is beta, it works flawlessly and is very clean and fun to use.

FrontPage 2003 has no real change.

The *new* programs are next.
