I may be a bit biased but I can't think of any plus points.
I have actually used both quite extensively and to my mind 2003 is much better. For a start the interface is familiar yet easily customisable. Its also faster than the 2007 offering, takes less disk space and produces more portable documents.
No doubt other will feal differently.

I personally like the artistic features of PowerPoint 2007 much better than 2003. You can create some pretty nice looking presentations.

Greetings jmattson30 !

Outlook 2007 runs slow in comparison to Outlook 2003.  Disabling some of the new features speeds up OL07 a little, but OL07 is still slow compare to OL03.  

There is suppose to be better security in Office 2007, but not enough to warrant the upgrade.

Hope this helps, war1
