Dude, you’re getting a… etc

A nice Irish lady phoned me up today to say that Dell will be arriving at my house on Monday morning to drop off a brand-spanking new Windows Vista PC with 19-inch LCD monitor, preloaded with Microsoft Office 2007.

My name is Robert Hampton, and I am Bill Gates’s bitch!

    How’re you finding the office 2007 ribbon interface?

    After playing with it a bit, it’s not bad actually. I can understand why they’ve done it — the multitude of pull-down menus on previous versions of Word were positively frightening. Being able to tab through the options is quite handy.

    Brilliantly, Excel 2007 still has an old-style Multi-Document Interface (i.e. each file opens in a window within the main window) — which is one of the things I used to hate about using Windows, and I’d hoped they’d scrapped it completely by now.
