By now you’ve probably heard about or seen the new Microsoft Office user interface, the future of office computing, the productivity suite for the twenty-first century. Uh, yeah, whatever.
So what does this grand new GUI use as an icon for the Save command?
A floppy disk.
- What percentage of computers that will be running Vista Office have floppy disk drives?
- What percentage of new users are old enough to recognize the icon?
That is precious.
But now I'm wondering how many other applications I use have floppies for their "save" icons. The only other example I could find was Acrobat. Most of the applications I use don't even have a button for "save."
