View Full Version : Lotus Smartsuite vs. M$ Office

Hi,

Just like ur guy's view on these two .... I am thinking of selling my Office 2k Pro due to the reasons of activation. I have got a laptop and it had provided me a free copy of Lotus Smartsuite .... I hear its quite advance since some lecturers use it .. some even does regression analysis for research. And in this way Excel is quite crap since many orgs use SAS or SPSS.

In partcular how does word, excel, powerpoint and outlook compare with Lotus?? Does Lotus let u open Office file types??

I tried and failed to find a option to export outlook to Lotus Organiser .. Outlook apparently only exports to other MS programs! On Lotus however is it possible import from Outlook?? I mean the PST file.

I am still waiting for it on courier .. since we had to make a electronic request on the web.

Hi RC
I have done the opposite and transferred from Lotus Smart Suite to MS.
I think there is little difference between the two products, except that hardly anyone I have to collaborate with has Lotus. Its user base seems to be getting smaller.

Hope thats some help
