It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Microsoft Office 2007

After the Mythmas and New Year break I returned to work to discover that my work PC has had MS Office 2007 installed on it, instead of Office 2003.

I didn't start life hating Microsoft products, once upon a time I actually liked what they did. Now I see every change as a negative. Windows and Office gets worse at every "upgrade". Office 2007 is particularly nasty, doesn't fit with the rest of XP, looks like a child's toy, seems to be as slow as hell, and uses an already abandoned file format...

Open-source software seems to change without the same pain as Microsoft. KDE4 is radically different from KDE3 but somehow I didn't mind the transition - so it's not change that I don't like...
