I neither know nor care what Microsoft's application looks like.  I have never 
used it.  Come to think of it, I think the only M$ application I've ever used 
was my grandson's package with which he made birthday cards, as a child.  What 
is more to the point is that many people have appreciated the changes.  They 
don't suit me, but as long as I can switch them off, that's OK.  Any sentencing 
I do will be on people who want everyone to work their way :-)
