Office 2007 Beta 2

Well, here are my gripes that had better get fixed before the final version:

– In the far top left hand corner where a double click would cause the windows to close is now the "Office button". No matter how much clicking I do, it doesn’t close the window. I get options to create new messages or save the message and stuff; even to close the window but the double click doesn’t work. Dumb, stupid and infuritating.

– Worse still is the new "ribbon" toolbar – don’t get me wrong, they look quite funky but take up a huge amount of room. You can’t customise the ribbon or close it (apparently because some idiot users mess their Office installs up too much – FFS…) but you can hide it by double clicking. Great! But when you close the window and start a new message, the ribbon’s back in all its gigantic glory. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Fix it, fix it, fix it!

Other than that, looking quite fine so far! I like the calendar overlays, categories and a few things that are fixed in the IMAP handling. But, I aint going to use it until those bloody menus get sorted.
