But if you want my advice, stay out of that trap, for a trap is exactly what it is. Look closely at some of the cool new features in Office 2003. Almost all of them will require you to upgrade your desktops and your servers. Almost every cool feature won't work with older versions of Office.
Are CIOs in this business environment planning on upgrading their entire infrastructure in order to deploy a new office suite? Not likely. Are they expecting their business partners to do the same so they can benefit from the new integration features in Office 2003? I don't think so.
A good opinion piece which challenges the Office 2003 upgrade for what it is -- a point release at best, if you ignore all the new pieces (which have to be bought separately in many cases, anyway).
