Interesting. But Mondo is too lame. Even for Microsoft.

Very unique name I must say, couldn't find the meaning in the Encarta dictionary, so I googled. The name means either "World" or "Enormous". This could mean Office 12 is giving you a bigger view of your information to make sense of with new ways to manipulate, share it while at the same time have more control over it.

Also, "Office 12" is already the codename, and it has always been that way, as long as I can remember. I think Office 2000 was code name Office 99 though.

Geez, this is the same company who came up with the lame "Vista". "Mondo" is just as craptacular, so I fully expect it to be the final title.

You're skipping it because of a name that may not even be the final name?

Strange person.

Just call it Office 12. Sounds good. Microsoft Office Vista is not too bad either.

I care more about the features, rather than the name.

That's a bit drastic...

But you're right it is a really bad name! And wasn't there a level in Super Mario World called "Mondo"?

I guess you are one of those users who only use 10% of the features in Office anyway.

and thus office 12 will be named office 2006 or maybe 07 but i doubt it. just like we know for a fact that longhorn server will be windows server 2007 even tho they havent said it yet ;)

Actually I'm skipping because it doesn't offer anything I need, new name aside. I still use Office 2000 because its all I need.

I like Windows Vista, but Mondo is not a name. I really hope this is either fake or just a codename.l

What about Office 10? Everyone thought the suite was going to be christened Office 2002, but was named Office XP instead. Even Paul Thurrott thought it was going to be named Office 2001.

The recent release of Office 10 Beta 1 has unearthed a slew of new features, including a subscription software service, voice control, and numerous simplification improvements that will help shape this release into a compelling upgrade over Office 2000. Office 10 Beta 1, which Microsoft now says will be called Office 2001 or Office 2002 when it ships, includes the client software, an Office Web Server, the Office Resource Kit, two Language Packs CDs, and a ClipArt CD

Actually, a lot of the documentation for Office XP still refers to it as Office 2002 :).
