Well its a busy day for downloads! Office 2007 Beta 2 Technical Refresh is now available for public download. I’ve been running this build for quite some time now and I find it very stable. The biggest change of course with office is the User Interface. In most of the applications the menu structure you were used to in the current and older versions of Office is for the most part gone. This has been replaced with Ribbons which make it easier for you to get your work done faster. The concept is to bring features forward as the user uses the product. What we call a results orientated interface. So if you are working in a table for example in Word 2007 the tools you need to accomplish this task are brought forward to you when you need them. Like the example below:
I’ve simply inserted a table and placed my cursor in one of the cells. Word 2007 has automatically brought all the commands I need to work on a table forward so that I can use them. Pretty cool huh?
