Office 2007 interface preview video

I am becoming completely taken with the new Office interface.  You only see what you really need to see at any given point.  It’s a tremendous boon to Tablet users; no more navigating down infinitely nested drop-down menus…yuck.  If you want a better understanding of what’s coming, check out this streaming preview video from Microsoft.  Some people are worried about relearning a whole new interfact, but I wouldn’t worry about it too much.  If you look for stuff where it ought to be you probably find it.  If you look for it where Microsoft used to hide it, you’re in trouble.  The designers have done a great job putting all the various controls where they intuitively belong.
