The enchanted office

Microsoft using a comic to sell the benefits of the new Office UI brought home to me what a big event this is. This is going to affect more people than any other piece of interface design since (insert preferred choice of Windows 95/3.1/Mac OS (or Apple Lisa/Xerox thingie if you want to be a real curmudgeon)).

Am I exaggerating? Not sure myself but the amount of people who work with Office is much higher that the number of people that worked with GUI’s in any form back then and the change is fairly big. So maybe I’m not exaggerating…
