I purchased this as part of a MacUpdate bundle. I've just removed this from my system. I just wasn't using it. I tried a few times and can see how it would be attractive for some people. Just a few minor things added up to make the experience with this software less than positive. Use of a papyrus font (minor quibble I know, but yuck). Loading a process into startup items if I went into the preferences, even if I didn't set it as the screensaver. The same background process requiring my MBP discrete graphics card so I would need to kill it and remove it from startup items to ensure battery wasn't used unnecessarily.

I'm aware of what background processses are. I'm work as a system administrator. My issues were more that the background process stayed in place even if I didn't have the app set as a screensaver or in use and required discrete graphics even though I wasn't using it at all. I.e. Even if I switched off my living desktop the background process remained. I also didn't like that the process was added as a login item even if I had switched off the screesaver. I wasn't trying to use it as a desktop, just a screensaver

I obtained Office:Mac through the Microsoft Home Use Program this week.

Just getting Entourage connected to an Exchange server was a painful and complicated process and required quite a few google searches. I'm not sure how a non-technical user would go (I'm a Linux sysadmin by trade).

I find the interface just looks "wrong" and outdated. It just doesn't follow the standard look and feel for a Mac app and the Leopard UI. Ugly icons, ugly font choice and colour choices. Having integration with my Exchange calendar is nice and the reason I've installed it.
I'm looking forward to Snow Leopard and the inclusion of Exchange integration as I much prefer the look and feel of
