Microsoft "eWEEK Labs' evaluation of Microsoft's Office 2007 Beta 2 unearthed compelling features and tools, and reminded us why enterprises continue to rely on the productivity suite. During tests of the second beta of Office 2007, we were impressed with the suite's collaboration features. In fact, we believe they will be the impetus for dedicated Windows shops to upgrade when Office 2007 ships later in 2006. The suitewide attention to collaboration will enable users and enterprises as a whole to work with information in new and more creative ways." My take: I've been testing Office 2007 for a while now, and all I can say is this: the new interface is excellent. Try it before judging it, please.

MS can get their act together, but usually only when they are really hard pressed to.

Well, i don't think they were pressed to improve it in the case of Office... There are no real competitors to MS Office. I think it should be just a very nice surprise for all of us who thinks "Microsoft has no taste".
