"Would love to know how MS ended up here..."0.5 starson by raoul_lipschitz
Pros: All the buttons are very pretty
Cons: Who moved my cheese? My format toolbar? How to print? For that matter, I can't find anything!
Summary: I've never seen a product so thoroughly burn it's bridges behind it. Nothing I knew after nearly 15 years of using some Office product or another, on either Windows or Mac, provided any clue whatsoever as to how the new product functioned. It now takes me twice as long to edit Word documents, about the same or more for complex spread sheets, and up to 5 times longer to construct decent-looking PPT slides.
I keep hearing that, if I stick with it and get over the "steep learning curve", I'll eventually like it. I don't believe I'm overstating things by saying that, up to now, I've considered myself a "power user" of these applications. However, after 4 months, the learning curve doesn't seem to leveingl, and I'm finding that simpler (less interesting) documents are becoming the norm just to meet my deadlines.
Thanks for your submission!
