Propriety software as quality of life issue

I'm being interviewed for a job as a VB.NET programmer. I have a good chance of getting it, despite all my past experience being with Java/Perl/Python/C. I'm somewhat of an Open Source ideologue, and hate the idea of using Microsoft technologies, which strike me as not only technically inferior and frustrating to work with, but on the wrong side of history. I'm looking for other options, but assuming they don't come through before I'm given an offer will I regret taking it? Doesn't Microsoft itself consider VB deprecated? To what extent are the other .NET languages (C#) better? [more inside]

Good help forum for Office 2010?

Can anyone recommend a good, well-trafficked forum for Microsoft Office (particularly 2010) questions? Seems like this should be eminently Googleable, but maybe because there are so many of them, I'm not finding the one that is the one. Thanks!

stymied by excel

There has to be an answer for this, but I just can't figure it out. In Excel, I've got 5 columns (A-E). I need to return a list of values from column A if either column B or C equals 'foo', *and* if either column D or E equals 'bar'. What's the magical formula (or whathaveyou) that will make this happen? For bonus points, results need to appear on a separate tab than the source data. asking on behalf of mrs spinturtle, I personally have no idea what I'm talking about.

Microsoft Publisher Database Problem

I had a large address list in Microsoft Publisher 2003 I used for address label mail merges. It resided on a Windows XP3 Service Pack 3 machine. I upgraded my machine to Windows 7 32Bit and MS Office 2007. Mail merge address list Edit attempts now says "An operation cannot be completed because of database engine errors" report. Any suggestions on exporting that data or synchronizing to the new database form? Can I extract the data from this old database into some other format and import it to the new Publisher...or do I have to...eek... re-enter all the data and create a new database?

Why does changing my keyboard layout in Windows change my editing language in Word?

I often write in several languages (French, Dutch, and English) and so I use multiple keyboard layouts (on Windows 7) and multiple editing languages (in Microsoft Office 2007). I find that when I have Word open and I change the keyboard setting in Windows (from US to US-International or vice-versa), Microsoft Word will change the editing language back to English (United States), Word's default language, no matter what other language (Dutch or French) I was working in at the time.
