Man, this is exciting stuff
I dont like the new interface for the new office and Im not fussy bout this. My ISP email servers are pophm.sympatico.ca (pophotmail) and smtphm.sympatico (smtphotmail).
Are there any screenshots of outlook 12? I will probably stick with office 2003.
Here are a few Office 12 screenies:
I think many people (including myself) felt that way when we first saw screenshots of Office "12" last year. And yes, it'll take a little while to get familiar with the new UI, but after using Beta 1 for a couple of months, the changes are for the better, in my opinion. The contextual ribbons will literally show you features that you never knew existed.
If you have a MSDN subscription, or if a public beta becomes available at some point, I'd really recommend trying it out for a few weeks. It's the first version of Office that I'm actually excited about. The only reason I personally upgraded to Office 2003 was for Outlook, which is so much better than the XP version. Office 2007, on the other hand, includes major improvements to every application in the suite.
I wish I had one.
I agree, OutlookXP isnt as nice as Outlook 2003.
Um, I assume you mean that Outlook 2003 is BETTER than Outlook XP?
You must get excited very easily ;P
But kudos to the Office team. Seems like we'll actually be getting some major new features this time around.
Yeah the new version does look very exciting.
I love outlook 2003, I can't wait for this verson to become public!
I said it's the first version of Office that I'm excited about.
Why? Because I can actually see how it can make tasks that I perform often easier and faster. We had to use some pretty advanced Excel functionality extensively for one of the Physics labs that I took, and when I use Excel 12, I realize that it could have cut down the amount of work I had to do by a significant chunk. That's pretty damn cool. They've done some great stuff with pivot tables too. There was a Channel9 video about that a few days ago.
And of course, Outlook has literally been my life-line for many years now, so any improvements to it are always welcome with open arms here.
Also, my post was directed at teh chief
I am looking forward to this .. Then with them making Windows Mail simular to outlook without all the stuff you will never use; I will probably use it over outlook. The rest of the office suite looks nice though ...
Yeah, I get excited when the wind blows sometimes
