Here are some personal Vista updates:
1. Office 2007: Well, I saw a new video on Microsoft Office 2007. It showed a whole new menu structure that doesn’t involve drop-down menus as we know them now. It makes all the functionality more accessible and viewable. The only way to really understand is to go see it for yourself here.
2. IE7 Beta Update: I installed this beta a few weeks ago, and I’ve really loved the features of it (tabbed browsing, rss feeds, multiple home pages, etc.), especially the fact that it is SO much faster than Firefox. I have recently discovered a major flaw (in my opinion), however. I’ve found that when placing web orders in certain places (Chronopay, Woot), IE7 causes some fluky behavior that either breaks the server’s order process or causes it to halt completely. So, if you are using IE7, be sure to watch out for that. I keep Firefox on hand to place my web orders now.
