Having used the core Office XP applications for a good weeknow, Im already impressed and recommend them wholeheartedly.
But on the Developer front, whilst Microsoft have certainlyintroduced a bunch of neat new features most of which weve explored inthis article - Im still left feeling these are more nice extras you can livewithout.
Dont get me wrong weve made some great advanceshere. The Packaging Wizard. The Code Librarian. Smart Tags. But theyre allfeatures we can already implement today with just a little extra work. Theydont really excite me.
So, unless youre specifically after Office XP Developerfor its time-saving Workflow or Digital Dashboard functionality, you might justwant to invest those pennies elsewhere.Supercool but an essential upgrade? Oh no. Sorry, Bill.
