      Word 2007 In Classic Word Layout?

      I can't find anything in MS Word 2007 with this new layout. Can I put it back into the classic layout or do I just have to shut the fuck up and get used to it?

      there's a plugin (or addon, or whatever they're called) that costs $30 or so
      and it changes the ribbon into the classic menus
      can't remember who sells it, or what it's called, though

      LOL yeah the 2007 layout is a joke. I hate overdone kiddie interfaces (Vista anyone?).

      I used Word 2007 to write my dissertation. I too felt a bit disorientated at first, but really it is rather fab. And the Bibliography tool (which both OpenOffice and previous Word versions lack) was a godsend.

      I don't like office '07
      I can't find anything
      If you're going to arse about with the UI, the least you could do is offer an "Office Classic" view

      I know people who have paid money for professional training in MS Office, and are royally pissed off as their training now means jack

      Should integrate right into OpenOffice (and Word?) If I was using Windows I would use LaTeX for things like dissertations. I got used to it for my senior thesis and I wouldn't go back.

      This LaTeX thing looks pretty cool. Thanks!

      I thought about LaTeX, but to be honest styling in Word was piss, did the job, and was more readily available on the lab computers than LaTeX.
