Steven Sinofsky, Microsoft's senior vice president for Office, today further dove into details about the forthcoming version of Microsoft Office, codenamed Office 12.
Yesterday the company unveiled the application's new user interface that should point the user to the application's features through the use of dynamic tool bars that will change with the task that the user is performing (eg: table toolbar when editing tables, graphics toolbar when...), while getting rid of the text menu bar altogether.
Today mostly brought details about the server side of the new Office, allowing workers to collaborate, share documents and the system's new content management capabilities.
On the light side, Sinofsky offered a set of Office steak knives (picture below) to the first 100 people who file a bug report for the upcoming beta of Office 12 that is due out later this year and will be sent to all PDC attendees (the final product is scheduled for release late 2006). We'll keep you to that promise, Steven.
Update: The third best know Microsoft employee Robert Scoble already has a set. And he didn't even report a bug (I assume).
The knives: "But wait, there is more!"
