Role of usability in the new version of Microsoft Office 12 for Mac

Overview of the upcoming (late 2007) version of Office 12 for the Macintosh. Including this quote:
“We had what we thought was going to be this perfect UI solution, and the first time we put it in the labs, no-one understood it! It was so different they were completely confused!
We just finished up another round of usability testing on the new UI yesterday, and the program manager said the difference is like night and day”.
