"Nice new features, but YUCK!!!"2.0 starson by sm5574
Pros: RSS feeds, categorized toolbars, better interaction between programs
Cons: It Look's Like Odie Puked on My Screen!
Summary: The first thing I always do when I get a new installation of Windows XP is switch to classic view. I detest the XP look. Office 2007 looks better than XP, but it still looks horrible. It looks like a 12-year-old designed it and a 6-year-old colored it. And we only have three colors to choose from! Why can't we get at the very least a "classic" color scheme. I mean, I really, REALLY don't like this new look. At all.
Don't get me wrong, Office 2007 has some nice features, but honestly, if it weren't for the RSS reader in Outlook I would uninstall the whole thing. I just can't stand looking at it. And it doesn't help that the very first time I used Excel I had to hunt for a very basic command: Print. PRINT!!! All I want is what I had: a single icon to click on to print a document, and I had to hunt for it!
Why does Microsoft think that it's customers will love their new creations? If I wanted a program that looked like it was designed by a Lord of the Flies think tank I'd get a Mac. C'mon Microsoft, make new friends, but don't forget the old.
