Re: On pink UIX elephants
.all seem to have significant UI changes every version, but I've yet to hear a clear reason why.
I can think of several reasons. The first one is that it keeps the training companies on board with Microsoft since it keeps them supplying new courses to established users, and the training companies are part of Microsoft marketing. The second is that new people want change for the sake of change, so they can feel they are in charge and making an impact. The third is the need for consumer perception of constant improvement when, let's face it, there isn't much improvement you can make to the actual guts of a word processor or a spreadsheet.
