Microsoft® Office Suite
Since its very first launch in the year with a bunch of three applications in the year 1990, Microsoft® Office Suite has seen evolution with each version. Various versions of MS Office suite have some basic standard features in common. But each time Microsoft® launches a new updated version of MS Office, it assures that technology is simplified for the general masses.
The starting version of Microsoft® Office contained Microsoft Word, Microsoft® Excel® and Microsoft® PowerPoint®. Further, more applications were added Microsoft Access® and Schedule Plus. Over the years, Office applications have grown to great extent with features, such as a common spell checker, Microsoft Visual Basic® for Applications scripting language.
Microsoft® has launched a service pack for the 2007 MicrosoftÂ Office suite. The 2007 Microsoft Office suite Service Pack 1 has substantial security enhancements, stability enhancements and performance enhancements. Some of the problems with the previous versions are fixed in 2007 Microsoft® Office suite SP1. This version combines the previously released fixes into one update.
Most of the versions of Microsoft® Office use their own widget set and are not same as that of the native operating system. This is clearer in the 2002 or XP release of Microsoft® Office as the standard menus were changed with a colored flat looking, shadowed menu style.
Microsoft® Office 2007 brings a completely new widget system, the "Ribbon", but now it is known as the ‘Fluent user interface’. You may be surprised when you first start some of the Microsoft® Office 2007 programs because the menus and toolbars in some programs have been changed with the Ribbon. The widget used Visual Studio® product line is the same as that of Microsoft® Office widget. Thus, the latest versions use the concepts of task-based user activities.
Galleries are at the heart of the redesigned programs. When working on a document, spreadsheet, presentation or Access® database, galleries give users with a set of clear results to select from. Galleries make the process of producing professional-looking work easy by displaying a set of potential results, rather than a complicated dialog box with a number of options. For those who want more control over the result of the operation, the traditional dialog box interfaces are still available.
