My favourite is still Office 97,, it had/has all the features I've ever 
wanted to use, and the thing is *fast*.  There's very little waiting for 
your computer to load up when using that program.  Unfortunately, MS in 
their wisdom now has people with new computers using a different file 
format by default, and I need to migrate users to an application that 
can open those files.  (for most people, that means Open Office and they 
are quite happy with it.)
