Office 12

Microsoft claims that 30% of the 600M Office users are still using Office 97. I have to agree. Office 97 was a pretty good suite of software and lacked much of the bloat of Office XP. But maybe I'm missing the point. According to Chris Capossela, Microsoft corporate vice president for the information worker product management group:

"We've gone beyond traditional applications of Windows and Excel on desktop and expanded beyond improving personal productivity."

I'm not supposed to expect my word processor and spreadsheet to improve my personal productivity, it's supposed to do something else!
