Office 12 User Interface

As much as we all love to hate Microsoft and all of its products, I think the new Office 12 interface is going to be the best yet. I have played around with a Beta and it is nice to use. Don't know if they have fixed the object models this time round but the nice interface looks promising.

I found this video on the Office website showing some of the cool stuff.

Launch in external player


Although, I do hope they haven't changed the shortcut keys like they did in Visual Studio...
