The REAL reason of the ribbon and Aero Glass....

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by John Jay Smith, Sep 1, 2006.

  1. Office was getting nowhere...

    After office 2000 the improvements in 2002 and especially 2003 were very

    so what would they have to do to sell more copies of office? (and windows
    for that matter)


    Do we care about innovation? New Ideas? Real improvements? Noooooooo

    We just want something that will look different so we can sell, even if it
    is WORSE and horrible.

    Its all about marketing... Remember MAC OSX is so good looking and MS always
    after people that do things right.. scrambling to copy the idea and to cash
    But they did it in a ridiculous way in the 2007 product line...

    That is how Office 2007 got the RIBBON and the Perl...
    And thats how Vista got Glass, the new Perl start button and the start

    Looks different therefore you are tricked into thinking it IS different..
    but in reality its the same ol same ol...... but WORSE in my opinion.

    People will pay their cash for NEW SKINS and very little new innovation....

    where are the GENIUSES? Answer: not working at Microsoft or getting ignored!

    Sorry MS... I praised you when you were on track... now you are blundering..
    and I am not
    a blind follower....

    I love excel and word 2007, I love the new UI and the new SDK and internal
    improvements, not the same about Vista the UI there is not much there, but I
    can't say anything wrong about office, the new Word and Excel have tons of
    improvements for developers.

  3. I didn't know that these newsgroups are now gathering places for
    conspiracy theorists. What's next? The real reason why the government
    keeps Area 51 secret or the real killers of JFK?
    Office 2007 has a huge amount of new and improved features. You are just
    too focused and blinded by the ribbon to see them.

    btw, I believe you mean "Pearl". Perl is a programming language.

    And right now it's called the Microsoft Office Button in Office 2007.
    Granted, everything is subject to change but that's not what they are
    currently calling it.

    Have you actually USED the ribbon? To say it is eye candy is rediculous.

    Windows Vista is also much more than eye candy. Granted, it's not what was
    originally envisioned ... but that doesn't make it insignifigant.

  8. Of course I have.

    Btw, my personal guess is that the number of new and improved features
    in 2007 is equivalent to all new & improved ones in Office XP and Office
    2003 together.

    New =/= Improved

    Office XP/03 made some bad "improvements", IMO (like the file finder)
