Office 2007 controls

P: n/a
Just instaled the new Office 2007, and the new layout is really cool. Will
there be any upgrades to VS 2005 Pro that will include new controls whith a
smilar look and feel as that you get in Office 2007?

I don't think so, which means that Microsoft didn't announce any public
plans. However, other control manufacturers will likely ship similar
controls.

Andy,
In addition to the other comments.

Historically: Office ships with new controls, subsequent versions of the OS
inherits the controls, subsequent versions of the developers tools support
the OS controls.

In other words Office 2007 & Vista are shipping "now"; I would expect
Vista+1 or Vista+2 to gain the controls in Office 2007; The VS that ships
about when Vista+2 ships may gain said controls.

Gene,
Thanks for the link, I've seen a couple of the other Ribbon clones; I had
not seen this one yet. From their web site, this one looks truer to the
Office Ribbon.
