Best Office route from SBS 2003/XP to Server 2012 Essentials/Win7
Posted on 2014-02-19
I need to upgrade a small network of SBS 2003 server and six XP PCs to Server 2012 Essentials and six Windows 7 Pro 64-bit PCs.
I would like to keep files on the server, but don't mind using a cloud based mail server.
What Office suite should I choose, currently using Office 2000 Pro, but only use Word, Excel and Outlook?
Am I crazy assuming the cloud is slow. No point in getting all singing and dancing Dell i7s with 8GB RAM and SSD drives, if we are waiting all day for a file to download or save.
