Video of new Office 2007 GUI


Recommended Posts

Good video of what the new GUI is going to look like..  Video url: http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/asx/OfficeUIIntro.asx

Screenshots are a great way for users to get a glimpse of upcoming products. Every time Microsoft releases an update for Vista or for Office 2007, screenshots are always available somewhere on the 'Net, and with them comes an enormous amount of user feedback which is typically dispersed between two categories: love and hate. The problem is that screenshots don't really show how the product runs, just how it looks. Opinions are formed before the product is ever seen in action.  Luckily, Microsoft has released some new Office 2007 footage so that users don't have to form opinions based on screenshots any longer.

The movie covers several different features touted in the next Office release including galleries, the ribbon interface, the Office menu, live preview, and contextual tabs. It also displays how the Office 2007 user interface can give real-time previews of documents before edits are applied. More than anything else, the video shows just how beneficial the ribbon interface can actually be to a user.

Microsoft wants to give the average user the power to design incredible looking documents with Office 2007. After watching the video, do you agree that the product is going to be superb as compared to Office 2003?
