I use Vista on all my computers. I know what you're thinking…issues. Well, your right but nothing compared to Office 2007 issues. I have basically gotten used to its daily crashes. Microsoft clearly spent a long time working on the file recovery features of Office, thankfully, as I only completely lose document occasionally.
I have a new problem as of this morning on my desktop box that may actually be a deal killer. I fired up Word to do a blog post and first I noticed everything is zoomed out to 200% as if I were a blind man or something. Hmm, well ok change that. I click the new document icon in the upper left corner and get the following dialog box.
Ok, may not seem that odd to the uninitiated but this is NOT the normal dialog box for this operation (at least on Vista)..
This is the normal dialog box on Vista (taken from my laptop as I write this)..
Hmm, I smell a Windows Update Downdate. WTF ?
Ok, if this were the only problem I could survive, but as it turns out my mouse no longer works in Word. No other applications have issues, just Word. Don't panic I say, just reboot it will be cool. Oh, wait all I actually have to do is quit word to make office crash. Again, and again, and again.. In fact it is completely hosed. Reboot, hosed..hosed..hosed..
Hmm, when do you suppose I should suspect this call..
