2003: Officially the Good Ol’ Days

Just purchased a spiffy new Lenovo ThinkPad, with which I also got Microsoft Office 2007. And to think, all I thought I was going to have to get used to was a new keyboard and more sensitive mouse. But no, Word’s gotta go and change everything up on me. Maybe y’all have had time to get used to this, but I haven’t, and I’m squirming with discomfort.


Look, Microsoft: Fuck you and your cutting edge Ribbon user interface. I’m pushing 30. That’s like 88 in digital years. I’m too damn old to relearn how to use Word. Give me back my 2003-vintage File and Edit menus and the delicate sense of control they once accorded me.
