Microsoft Office 12

I finally took some time to take a look at the Office 12 screenshots.

This is a hoax, right? Please tell me it's a hoax...

The new design seems extremely inefficient to work with. You probably need boat-load's of mouse movement to get just about anything done.

They removed all menu's except for the File menu. This is plain inconsistent, and makes no sense at all, they could have easily made a tab for that as well. Even if they made this consistent, it's still inconsistent with it's environment: Windows!

It seems they've applied the bigger-is-better paradigm to the toolbar, just look at how much screen space just the 'top' of the program takes, it's plain huge... I'd rather have more oversight of my document.

Conclusion: GNOME HIG rules!

  • You're absolutely right... I was thinking about putting a post on my blog about this but since you already did... I don't have to!

    I have been thinking long and hard about how to adress my anger about Office 12 but I haven't been able to put it into words so far...
