Microsoft Office 2007 Look

Some minutes ago I was finish installation of the Microsoft Office 2007 ("Office 2007"). This is great. Of course I am not thinking that this is revolution version, it have too many things from old versions. However Ribbon Toolbars and how they use title space - this is great-great ideas.

Okay, all is great. However as always something wrong. Now this wrong is that Office 2007 has too many interfaces. Word, Excel, PowerPoint have new Ribbon toolbars, Outlook have new colored but still old toolbars, and other application have old toolbars at all. Of course possible that this is only because it is beta. Hope Microsoft will have new interface in all their applications.

P.S. Tomorrow I will try to install proofing tools from Office 2003 and post result here.

Basically you need to install office 2003, install proffing tools, then install office 2007, then uninstall office 2003. Thats all.

Oh yes, work sequence is to remove Office 2003 and then install Office 2007.

Uninstallation of the Office 2003 will not affect on the proffing tools.

P.S. By proofing tools I mean separate package(installation).

Also try to backup C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PROOF\ and after office 2003 unistall restore this folder and then install Office 2007

Actually you don't need to install words or any other, you can install just the Proofing Tools of the language of your choice, so you wan't have to uninstall anything after.
