Microsoft Office 2003 is one of the most popular versions of the well-known office suite, which is still popular with users. The fact is that the "office" of 2003 preceded the emergence of Microsoft Office 2007, which has been greatly altered graphical environment. A huge number of users of the package did not like the new design, as well as the new operating system Windows Vista, the release of which was a redesigned version of the office suite. Even in the new version of the program used new formats of source files DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, incompatible with older versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint (later support was added by one of the released service packs) . As a result of all of the above, Microsoft Office 2003 has become one of the most "resilient" offices in the history of the package.
As mentioned above, the main advantage of Microsoft Office 2003 is that it is as simple as possible the interface that was used to earlier versions of the package. Compared to its predecessors, the new office has benefited from Unicode support, folder search, Kerberos support, an improved garbage file filter, as well as new project customization capabilities, design elements and an expanded library of templates and materials.
