Ribbons have keyboard shortcuts, just like menus. I think they even have the
same keyboard shortcuts by default. If they don't there's a period of readjusting, just like there was when switching from VS2003 to VS2005 with the new shortcuts. You get used to it, and then you get more productive. Embrace change!
Sad thing is our business is stuck in Office 97 , just starting to migrate to Office XP!
Why would you be upgrading to Office XP, now in 2006?
I'm not talking about jumping to Office 2007 as soon as it's available, but we have Office 2003 with two service packs and three years of solid proof behind it.
Why do I need to control+click (or shift+click) to select multiple emails? I'd prefer to have check boxes for each email to select/deselect them (being able to do it both ways would be best). This was mentioned in the video as well as earlier in this thread,
but if something that should be just one click requires me to hold down a key as well - that's
I wondered about this complaint that I saw from several people. Ctrl- and Shift-clicking to select is a very common convention in Windows, and one that's much more flexible than the checkboxes that are used on the web. Now people have gotten used to the inferior
replacement and don't want the full functionality anymore.

RF/KC is good stuff, although I'm more into Peter Hammill and Van Der Graaf Generator. 'Pawn Hearts' and 'Godbluff' are amazing, if you're into that stuff. Robert Fripp played on ' Pawn Hearts' and probably some other PH/VDGG stuff. They were musical friends
Fripp's played with so many people it's not even funny. He played with Bowie. He played with Blondie. Playing 6-degrees with Fripp is almost too easy.
