Office 2007 or XP?
So I have XP on all my lab computers, on my home computers, and my work computers.
My school is supposedly switching us all to Office 2007 and I was given an enterprise copy for home use.
I know the interface changed, and supposedly XML docs are better, but how much better? The memory and disc footprint is supposedly A LOT larger. Is it worth the upgrade, or should I just install the Office 2007 XML patch on my Office XP comps?

If you make Powerpoint presentations, 2007 will blow all other versions of Office out of the water. It just looks and works much better.
As far as other apps, I actually like the ribbon menus much more than the old menu. As soon as you get used to it, it's great to use. Memory wise, Outlook tends to be heavy on mem, but I only use it at work. Either way, it runs fine. I mean, I can even run Office 07 apps on my netbook (1.2ghz Via C-7, 1gb DDR2 533mhz) and it's fine.
Your friends are dead.
Your family's dead.
Your f**king pets are being skinned alive.
Your mom's a f**king whore.
You suck at life.
The whole world hates you.
You're going to hell.
Live with it.

Once you get used to the interface, you'll do things a lot faster.
Load it up at home, and go for it. There are some nice add-ins as well, such as save as pdf/xps, microsoft math, as well as Get Started tabs for walking you/new users through the features.
Additionally Office 2007 comes with some nice additional apps, like groove and one-note.
As long as you have 1Gb or more ram, it'll work fine.

2007 hands down. It's just plain better.

Reasons why it’s worth to be a PC gamer in 2012.
- The hardest thing about getting a Mac is telling your parents that you're gay.
- If I had the choice between being gay and owning a Mac, I would rather be gay, because if I owned a Mac I would be both gay and own a horrible computer.
- Imagine a giant cock flying towards your mouth, and there's nothing you can do about it. And you're like "Oh man, I'm gonna have to suck this thing", and you brace yourself to suck this giant cock. But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.
