Well, then, you probably don't do any custom "Office apps", right?  The
97-2000 upgrade was, in my understanding, primarly a release for people who
develop in Office VBA (like me).  From an administrative point of view, it's
a lot nicer with the auto-updating features, etc.  I agree, though, if you
don't develop, it's not a worthwhile upgrade.

I'm curious, which one?
