The Microsoft Professional Developers Conference 2005 is happening right now in LA and one of the things presented today where screen-shots of the new Office 12.

The new UI looks a reduced and cleaner. The new Microsoft Office 12 User interface is supposed to be easier, maximize workspace, contextualization of functionality and document lifecycle (work-flow) integration.

Maybe this time people will use more of the trillions of features available. I am still using MS Word just as a glorified text editor. For more background on the new Office 12 UI, read this Q&A. Screenshots of the new Office 12 can be seen here.

Bill Gates starred again in a funny video at the event. This time Jon Heder from the Napoleon Dynamite movie is seen with Gates in the video spoof. Reuters has some info. But it sounds like the Matrix Video Spoof is still his best.
