PC Worlds Most Innovative Product of 2006: Microsoft Office

Notice how I underlined “Innovative” in the headline? People have been saying for a while that Microsoft doesn’t innovate, and I swear to god, no one can look me in the eye and honestly claim that the Office 2007 Ribbon is not innovative. And if you don’t believe me, PC World says so, too.

PC World released their list of the 20 most innovative products of the year, and the number one spot on that list was taken by Microsoft Office 2007. For as little as $150, Microsoft will be offering in just five weeks its venerable Office suite with a gutsy, innovative, efficient, bold, bright, and powerful user interface, one that is going to change application design for the next few years. This isn’t the last reward for this great product, undeniably the best edition of Office, ever.

Other important products were on the list, including the Intel Core 2 Duo, arguably Intel’s first buzzworthy chip in years, Parallels, which lets Mac users run a whole library of wonderful Windows applications, the Nintendo Wii, the Dell XPS M2010, the big mama of superlaptops, the Pioneer Inno portable XM satellite radio, Google Sketchup, and the Sony Playstation 3. Check out the full list, but don’t ignore Microsoft’s king of the hill.
