Features, Office Screenshots of Office 12 have been published. You'll be amazed (for better or worse, your call). "As you can see, Microsoft is trying to do away with the 'legacy' menu bar. In newer Vista builds the menu bar is turned off by default (although it can be reactivated temporarily by pressing alt). In Office 12, the menus have been replaced with tab-like buttons. The only 'legacy' menu item that remains is the file menu, but it has completely been redesigned. The file menu now looks like the Windows XP start menu and can be customized as well." You can find more information and shots on Microsoft's website.

I really like this new approach by Microsoft-- it shows that they're really putting work into Office/Vista, which is a good thing no matter what.

Yeah because changing a working interface (that everybody and their dog knows how to use) for no apparent reason is always a good thing. Hey at least they changed some code.
