Love Word ? Hate Word 2007 ?

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am unhappy with Word 2007’s new and improved user interface. In short I lost all of my commands. I blogged about solutions to this problem before. As a different approach to this problem you could of course try to use the new and improved user interface instead of working out ways of avoiding it. With this in mind here’s an idiot’s guide video on how the ribbon works. It is certainly aimed at the hard of thinking but I found it useful. One quick tip: if you find marketing hype and false enthusiasm difficult to stomach bring a bucket.

I hate Word 2007. I train people to use computers and quite frankly, my job will now be much harder. Thanks a lot Microsoft....

The majority of people I do business with love the new layout. Most people aren’t power Word users and probably haven’t dug down into the various menu items that were available in previous versions of Word. They like the new "quick and easy" ribbon.

Personally, I think it is much improved and as you’ve pointed out there are workaround for those people stuck in the 70’s that have a sadistic lovin’ for applications that are "long and hard"! :-P
