Microsoft The New York Times has taken a look at Microsoft Office 2007. "After a radical redesign, Word, Excel and PowerPoint are almost totally new programs. There are no more floating toolbars; very few tasks require opening dialog boxes, and even the menu bar itself is gone. (Evidently, even Microsoft saw the need for a major feature purge. 'We had some options in there that literally did nothing,' said Paul Coleman, a product manager.)"

paperless office makes as much sense as having all your email on your hard drive, when a crash could knock it off, or on the web, making you totally dependent on the provider.

There's this little thing called backups to prevent this very thing.

Backups mean nothing when the power goes out or the network is down. Our entire organization grinds to a halt if the computers are down.
