I just discovered Jensen Harris’s — Lead Program Manager on the Microsoft Office “user experience” team — wonderfully interesting Office User Interface Blog. It deals mostly with the new interface to Office 2007 and — boy — are they cooking some sweet, major stuff!

This new version does away with menus and toolbars and replaces them with new paradigms such as the Ribbon, Contextual Tabs, and Galleries.
