Office 2007 is herald to be a true next-generation of the Office suite. Previously, releases of Office have only come with minor upgrades and in most cases many customers have complained that the price of every new version of Office does not warrant what’s delivered. Office 2007 however, is expected to bring an entirely new working environment.
