Not to mention, of course, the improved UI. That's the main reason I like it.
Easy for you to say - you're not old and resistant to change like a lot of us.
Heh... :) I'm still struggling with the new interface, and I'm a s/ware person! But then I have several PCs and switch constantly between them. That doesn't help.
Neither does the getting old thing.
The ribbon would be better than the old UI, except for one glaring mistake - it does not allow you to edit the ribbon's categories or make a new category. I have no idea why not, but it costs me lots of extra clicks for the way I use Word.
As an attorney with lots of transactional tasks, I need to redline and have the review tab available most of the time. But I also want to be able to do regular formatting tasks like the home tab lets you do. Previously, in 03, I just put both toolbars up. But 07 won't let you do that. I find that annoying.
