Some Good News on Office 2007

Arthur Cole

There is a fair amount of commentary regarding the new Office 2007 suite coming out this fall, most of it positive. John Carroll, blogging on ZDNet, said the ribbon-based GUI takes a little getting used to, but in the end is a very intuitive approach that gets you where you need to be quickly.

 

Mac users, meanwhile, will have a lot to smile about when that version of the system debuts some time next year. Not only will it emulate the new OS X Leopard, but it is being built on the Apple Xcode environment, making it more suitable for universal binary applications for both Intel and PowerPC Macs.

 

Even customization features designed for the disabled should benefit average users by increasing type sizes and screen resolutions, among other things.

 

All in all, it's a fair bit of positive news for Microsoft, which has taken a number of lumps lately, with recent wranglings with the European Union about fair competition and many complaints over the forthcoming Vista release.
