I know you say "don't ask", but...

Did you make these, or just get them from somewhere else? Could we have one of MSN Messenger if possible, thanks :)

Yeah, I made these, I'll post a messenger in a sec...

The reason I didn't was because there is barely any difference!

Stick to amsn...

Outlook 2004 KICKS ASS LADIES AND GENTS!!! And so does Word Notebook view, it's kinda like OneNote.

Haven't played with Excel or Powerpoint but I'm doing a presentation of Rawles tonight so maybe I'll get to tinker here and there...

Actually, OneNote is the only app I'm missing on my PB. It's great a move from the MacBU to integrate OneNote's functionality into Word! I can't wait to get Office 2004 (I qualify for the step-up).

Not sure, I'll check it out. I've been really busy so it's taking me time to look at the bells and whistles.


About "outlook 2004", I meant entourage...

Any news on Exchange support in Entourage?

My major bug bear is posting to public folders
Exchange support is there, however, since I don't use Exchange, I barely see any difference between the Exchange implementation in Entourage 2004 and Entourage v.X

I'm *really* not sure about the transparent formatting palette. That's just weird. I hope that can be turned off.

One of my pet peeves with Office v.X is that the formatting palette doesn't "remember" its state the last time you opened the program. Whenever I launch MS Word, only the "font" tab is visible, but I prefer to have both the "font" and "alignment tabs visible. But even if they fix that, I'm not sure the new version will be worth the upgrade price.

I know it's not a screenshot requestion, but when you save files in Word, Excel, etc. are you allowed to give them names longer than 31 characters? Please say yes! :eek:
Yes!

BTW, You guys are permitted to as questions about it, just don't bug me about how I got it!

In regards to the formatting palette. I actually, like the fade in fade out option, everytime my mouse touches it, it goes back to normal. When it is transparent, the interface feels a lot less clunkier.

I am unaware as to the release date.

If you guys want anymore screens of any more features/stuff in Office 2k4, just reply with what you want!

Do you have Virtual PC 7, too? If yes, could you say something about its performance?

Yeah, that must have taken them all of 10 minutes to update :rolleyes:
MSN Messenger 4 is an app I'm really disappointed with, I had high hopes for it, that's why I created that thread a few days ago :(

Don't ask, just look :D
LOL.
There's a clue in your screen-shots.

Yea, and can you also save files in names other than in english without it looking messed up?

What's up with the interface?

I don't understand why Mac OS X looks so different. All the icons have changed; the windows are dark blue (??) and Safari's icon seems lower quality. You weren't using a theme program when you made the screenshots, were you, nspeds?

I like the new features of Office 2004; I haven't yet decided if I want to purchase it or stick with AppleWorks (which came with my iMac).
