Well, now it looks like I'm really going to have to rename this blog because we're heading into another Microsoft Office release--this one (in my anticipated view), the best we've seen in our digital lifetimes.
I know you may be tempted to groan and say, "Oh no--not more commands to learn!" but this new Office is something very different--a creative user-oriented redesign. The program is being reborn so that it will work the way we do. The days of hunting for that one underused command tucked away in some double-secret submenu of a dialox box are over. Now we'll have a nearly intuitive UI that will offer us just the commands we need based on the context of what we're trying to do. Seamless software. That's what I'm hoping for.
I will be working with this new program over the coming months (I'm so psyched!) and will report back what I can (I'm under NDA so I can't go too far). But in the meantime, check out what they're saying about what's coming in Office 12. IMO, this version is really something to get excited about.
