Default Re: Office 2007 beta is out

The first couple of minutes after working with Office 2007 I were like 'what the hell did they do'. Now I'm quite glad they changed it. All the relevant functions are now nicely compartmentalized and the tabs ... Tabs FTW!!!!

I am convinced that this setup will make this program much easier for beginners to learn.

My only question is why have Microsoft not done this earlier?

What's called ribbons? The 'tabs'?

I'd just like to chime in on this several months after the fact.

Openoffice 1 was UNBEARABLE regardless of the platform it was run on. It had that "I'm built on a Java template program" written all over it. Personally, I blame it on Java because of my hate for it...but it was just a very slow program.

OpenOffice 2 is a lot better and is a decent alternative if you can't pony up for Office. It's still significantly slower than Office, especially on a slower system. You can also install OpenOffice 2 on a thumb drive, which is pretty nice, but then its so slow that you may as well install MS Office on the machine.
