Just a quick followup to my whining that the Microsoft Office 2007 suite seemed unreasonably slow – here’s an article specifically complaining about the performance of Outlook 2007 and describing widespread grumbling by users, bloggers, and even Microsoft consultants. The article also describes a situation with which I am painfully familiar – the same programs will work fine on one computer and work slowly or crash on the seemingly identical computer right next to it. “Clearly, there are some things I don’t understand,” says an Exchange consultant quoted in the article.
I’ve reinstalled Office 2007. It’s behaving better. Maybe I was just in a bad mood before. I’ll keep you posted.
