I spent another day with Office 2007. I found myself wanting to go to\nmenus often, although when I finally did figure out where the new\nfunctions are.\n\nIn some ways MS is going backwards (or forwards in an inferior way\nthan in the past). The help system is an example. The .chm help\nfiles with Contents, Index, and Search is much better than what they\noffer now.\n\nThere seems to be only one customizable bar (I could be wrong).\n\nIn the past I was a computer programmer / database analyst, and used\nVBA and many other higher-end capabilities of Word, but now I'm mearly\na user creating simple documents, and for that it works well for me.\n\nI am more surprised by new features or ways of doing things than I am\nirritated by not being able to find features that I easily knew were\non particular menus.\n\nI am still very irritated that the bullet alignment under Windows 97\n(which didn't have an indent -\- the bullet was right below the line\nabove) has an indent. I will probably live with it rather than trying\nto change the normal template\n\nFor IT shops supporting it should be much easier. For most users they\nwill probably be able to discover and use more functions more easily.\n\nSo, for me, IE7 is a disaster, Office 2007 I like, and Vista no\nexperience yet -\- hopefully a pleasant surprise.
