Windows 7 ad charms with killer combo: little girl, kitten in marshmallows, Final Countdown

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.
