OMFG the unthinkable finally happened! VISTA IS RELEASED TO MANUFACTURERS! this means that 2 things are going to happen
the most popular features of vista are its new AERO visual style (stained-glass taskbar and windows), its built in indexing service, and its higher security features
- multiple sources will recieve the RTM (due to the recieving of the RTM, the os will be leaked, and not only that, hackers will patch the final version of the os to work with beta/RC keys already happened
- halo 2 vista is just a breathtake away (not litteraly)
vista's power far exceeds that of dusty-old xp
office 07 not only constitutes as an advancement in microsoft's series of office programs, but also as a revolution of the legacy office programs
the cascading menus and docked toolbars we have come to know and hate are at an end. the new office system will replace that old junky look with a sleek new ui called the ribbon. the cascading menus will be replaced with tabs (as seen in IE7 and firefox) that allow different options to be viewed.
also, as a bonus, templates for word documents are avaliable to use in the new build. the ribbon also gets rid of the hassle of searching through tool bars by using larger, easier to read icons for options.
new visual fonts have also been incorperated to this final build of office 07
(as a note, the only leak of 07 RTM is the enterprise edition)
