While half a million additional users are expected to participate on Beta 2 of Office 11 Microsoft have showed no real signs of wanting to commit itself to the new name yet choosing to leave all reference to the beta as Office 11 from BetaPlace. At the risk of violating someones NDA we can disclose that Microsoft have posted a survey that requires all testers to complete from BetaPlace on the new look of Office
In this version of Office, we have changed some of the appearance of Office including its menus, toolbars, and task panes (like Home, New Document, Styles & Formatting). We're interested in your impressions of these visual changes. These questions are about the Office Beta appearance, not its functionality.Some questions include: Would you say the appearance of Office Beta is Inviting or Cold? and Which Windows theme are you currently using on the computer running the Office Beta?
If you haven't already seen the survey and have BetaPlace access take a look for yourself.
