Preview the 2007 Microsoft Office System
The 2007 Microsoft Office System preview site is now up and running! Click this link to go to the site to read the FAQ, watch a video, and explore the capabilities of the program divided up by role (developer, IT professional, partner, small business)--a smart way to introduce the changes.
Also, here's a link to a whole list of Office 2007 blogs, written by Microsoft program managers. Great resource! And really just interesting reading, if you are curious about Microsoft culture. :)
I'm writing about Office Publisher 2007 right now. It's got many great new features (doesn't share the "Ribbon" UI, tho). Think reusability and flexibility--and of course, more new design options than you can shake a stick at. [For international readers--that's a colloquialism and I have no idea where it originated! :)] I've always had a soft spot for Publisher, ever since I first wrote a book about it--way back, oh, sometime in the 90s! :) I think it's one of the unsung heros of the Office System--it often doesn't get the press it deserves but it sure saves many people a lot of time, effort, and money--and gives us a friendly tool for creating some great looking publications.
