Feeling the LOVE?
So I finally gave in and installed Vista and Office 2007 on my work machine. I loaded it onto my Tablet PC just before TechEd.
I used the betas of all other MS OS's long before they were shipped as my day to day work machines. I just couldn't do it with Vista. I couldn't afford the downtime trying to find simple things that were in unexpected locations. Change for change sakes it seems to me.
I notice it is slower than XP. UAC drives me mad, yet I haven't disabled it. IE7 seems to take along time to load simple pages.
Before you ask it is a P4 3.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. You would think it is up to the task.
Office 2007 is a productivity nightmare. I still haven't figured out how to put page of pages into the footer of a word document yet.
I can't think of anything worse than deploying this to my users. I'll spend the next year doing nothing but answering Word 2007 questions.
I realise it is going to take some time to get used to it. I will try to keep an open mind and use it for 30 days and then see what I think.
I am going to put a desktop out in the office with Vista and Office 2007 and get the users to try it. I think they will have some interesting things to say about it.
Wow, I just realised I can access this from Word 2007 and post, edit etc. OK something in it's favor
