Office 2007 Beta 2

I could say a LOT about Office 2007 Beta 2, but basically they have redesigned the user interface from the ground up, and made is something that is EASY to work with.

Gone away is the cumbersome "File Edit View" drop down menus, and here to stay are the world of TABS...

Here is a look at what Tabs did for Microsoft Word 2007:














Now when you Right Click on a word, you get all kinds of editing abilities:





You also get really PRETTY menus:





[BREAK=A quick look at Outlook 2007]

With Outlook 2007, even more information is easily laid out at your fingertips. Here are some quick views of what 2007 offers you:




Notice the nifty To DO Bar. You can click on it and get instant "Oh YEAHs":




And when you get ready to type up an e-mail, you get professional looking messages:





Overall, I say this version of Office is WELL WORTH the money to upgrade. Later on I am going to install the Groove server, and see how well it works.
