"Wow MS another product I won't recommend my clients buy!"1.0 starson by Venture
Pros: Total lack of worthwhile updates
Cons: Didn't bother fixing any issues with previous office
Summary: MS is really bombing out as of late. I make my living installing servers, and workstations. Along with new installations I spend a great deal of time maintaining and updating systems. I have to say I can't in good conscience recommend Office 2007 to any of my clients.
My clients already know how to use Word, Excel and Outlook. Learning the new interface will only set them back in productivity.
Access doesn't have any new way of handling pictures for their catalogues as far as I could tell - should be much easier to link to a picture or import a picture.
Many of my clients want more than one outlook profile for their exchange server - e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and want them completely seperate from their normal outlook mailbox. Being able to open two SEPERATE profiles, (not just two accounts in the same profile) should have been a feature in the new version. PS Outlook still doesn't close any more reliably than it did in any previous version making switching between profiles a pain.
As another post stated - why the heck isn't BCM more integrated with Exchange. If you can't remote access BCM through OWA or WM5 it really has very little value.
An utter waste of 3 years. The time would have been much better spent releasing Office 2003 REV 2 "the missing features version"
I typically make my money when a good upgrade comes out, looks like earnings will be slim for both of us. Thanks MS my clients will be stuck with Office 2003 because your developers seem to be more of FLASH web page designers than programmers. Who the heck is in charge of MS these days - where is the accountability?
