It is my understanding that there is no "upgrade package" as in the past
that willl convert Office XP Pro to Office XP Developer. Whether there are
useful enhancements in Office 2003 that will benefit you depends on how you
use and plan to use Office -- there are a number of enhancements in XML,
collaboration, and enterprise integration (e.g., a smoother integration with
Share Point Portal Server). If you are individual user or a developer with a
small-workgroup target market, you will certainly see less applicable
enhancement. There are quite a number of configurations, but only one with
the Developer Tools, I believe.
