The upcoming latest version of Microsoft Office, 2007 Office System has been released to manufacturing.  Business users with volume licensing will be getting their copy later this month but the public will need to wait for January 2007 to get their hand on this hot release.  Check out Microsoft’s press release for more information.

Yes it is finally out.  Click on the link below and try it out.  Go ahead, its a good software, worth the time you spend on it to try (or should I say test?).

I am definitely going to check this new release of Office 2007 out.  New usability idea, can I use that “Ribbon” in my application development?

Office 2007 will be bundled

It seems like Microsoft is giving away Office 2007 to those who buy Windows Vista Home edition.

According to C|Net News, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, said that Windows Vista Home edition (he did not say whether it is the Home Basic or the Home Premium, but I believe both will get it) will come bundle with Office 2007 Student/Home edition.

This will be so coolz if the price stay at the same.

For details, take a look at this article.  The title is of a different topic but the 2nd last paragraph (in point form) talks about this bundle thingy.

Preview – Office 2007 UI

It seems like Microsoft is giving user a preview of their upcoming Office 2007 UI.  You can see their new design direction from the screenshots that is up on their site.

Personally, I like the bluish theme, but I have seen people in forum who said that the blue looks ugly.  Well it seems in design, personal taste still rules.
