Well, I stumbled on this little bit of information on http://www.extended6...el/default.aspx

Just in case you don't have super vision like me, here's the text from image one/two:


Microsoft® Office Word 12 [pre-release](12.0.3224.20000) MSO (12.0.3224.2006) BETAPart of Microsoft Office Mondo 12>
Unpublished work. Copyright © 1983-2005 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Image three is the most blurry photo I've taken in my life. It's a shot of the new application settings window buried within' each Office suite application. Enjoy, if you can.

Check out the screenshots of Word Help About 12 here

Sorry if this has been posted already

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.

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"?

LOL

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