Hope your Christmas went well

Sometimes I write a post just for a couple of people. This is one of those times. Shel and Paula Israel, thank you so much for an awesome dinner last night! What a feast! I’m still recovering. And, thanks to Jeff Clavier for the wine. It’s the first time I’ve had a 30-year-old wine. Damn, now I can’t go back to my two-buck-chuck. Sigh.

And, yes, Shel, I do have ThinkPad envy. Your new toy is so light! Not like the desert we had. What a log! I showed Jeff Windows Vista and Office 12 too. Jeff liked it a lot.

Me too, after switching half of my life over to Windows Vista and Office 12 it’s really hard to go back to XP and Office 2003.

One thing I’ve noticed is that Office 12′s new UI feels a lot more “Web like.” Why? No menus. I think this is going to be a suprise hit. Steve Gillmor is counting Office out, saying it’s dead, but, sorry, I sure like using Office 12 a lot more than, say, Writely (which I’ve also been playing with).

    Thanks so much fr making the Holday dinner so special. Thanks for all you have done for me in the last year, but most important, thanks for becoming such a good friend.

  3. Justin: I like it a lot — as a Web service. But, it doesn’t even come close to Office 12. I, unlike others in the industry (ahem, Steve Gillmor) don’t see it as an alternative to Word, but as something different.

  6. It’s true. Once you get a Thinkpad, X40 here, you realize that they really are the best notebooks made.

    If the X41 Tablet only had a higher resolution like the M200. Hopefully we’ll see the M400 at CES!
