Are you a traditionalist who hates Graphical Interfaces.  Do you love WordPerfect classic mode, or run Vim at home, but have to use Word 2007 in the office?

Or do you just want to focus on writing, and none of that formatting stuff that an editor can deal with for you?

Well you might be surprised to know that you can very quickly set up Word 2007 to get rid of the Ribbon, get rid of the status bar, and change the colours to a classic monochrome green with a black background!

Bet you didn’t know that!

Well our friends over at the Microsoft Office Word Team Blog have described exactly how to set up Word 2007 in a quasi-classic mode!  You can read more about it in their post called Word Throwback “Just Write” Edition… which was coincidentally inspired by one of my favourite authors and bloggers, Tim Ferriss.

How cool is that!  Takes me back to 1989!

‘till next time!
