I managed to swing by the Microsoft Office booth just in time for a demo of Office 2008
, and I snapped a few screenshots
. The presentation was made with Word since, as the demo folk pointed out, it is the app they have completed the most code on. As Scott mentioned
, the words "page layout" were used quite often while emphasizing many of Word's new features, but of course the two big show-stoppers are Universal Binary status and a revamped UI that melds the Mac way of doing things with the impressive new 'Ribbon' UI in Office 2007 for Windows. My 425-px screen shot in this post doesn't really do it justice, but my pics in the gallery
should offer a few more details for prying eyes. It sounds like we'll still have to wait for demos or a peek at any of the other Office components, however, as I couldn't squeeze anything else out of the booth attendants.
