... the upgrade you get which isn't really an upgrade. I've been persevering with Office 2007 at work for a couple of months now but it feels like a lot longer. Before Office 2007 came along I felt very comfortable with the two applications I use most; Word and Excel. Now I don't. The software capability hasn't changed but doing the big 'shuffle the pack' trick on all the menus and buttons has seriously peed off this Microsoft Office user.
From my perspective the switch to the new version simply hasn't made my life any easier. None of the routine functions I use with those packages have been simplified or made easier in any way whatsoever. In fact, the converse is true. I still can't easily find some of the less frequently used functions. A few years back I wrote a book in MS Word, containing +200 images, all 300+ Mb of it, some individual files being as big as 80Mb with no troubles at all. I would dread trying to do the same thing today (although by the end of it I'd probably know where all the functions were).
Sorry Bill, back to the drawing board. On the next version you need an installation option which lets users retain the previous menu interface. I'm glad we haven't upgraded at home because we won't be. I get paid to have a difficult time at work but I'm not putting myself through a comparable degree of trendy, new-age, Microsoft-inspired interface trauma at home.
