Netcentrics Plug IN
Hi Fellow GTD'ers,
As a design engineer and early adopter by necessity of Windows 64 bit of professional necessity, you don't have to install the 64 bit versions of Microsoft Office and in fact there is no real benefit to doing so unless you are doing something ultra-sophisticated, or your IT department requires it. Microsoft hasn't gotten Internet Explorer 64 bit to work reliably in all circumstances yet.
Run the 32 bit version of Microsoft Office until you have to change - that is what I do, and if Outlook is a bit slow - it is your hard disk drive, not the program that is the issue. I have an SATA 3 Solid State Disk Outlook and my 1.3 GB mail file load in about 3-4 seconds - or 60-90 seconds with a conventional hard disk. Word & Excel load almost instantaneously, a giant program like Solidworks or Photoshop CS5-64 where you really need 64 bit, loads in 5 seconds.
