Outlook 2007 - Any problems with backwards compatibility?

I'm thinking of installing Office 2007.

I'm wondering if anyone has hit any backward compatibly issues either with
their own files or files from co-workers.

Did anyone upgrade and wish they had not?

OLPC mechanical design

http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=218 has a step-by-step
disassembly of the XO laptop, analyzing it from a mechanical design
point of view. This is only tangentially related to the issues raised
in earlier discussion about defects in the usability of the OS/UI, but
I think it's relevant to consider in terms of the holistic user
experience of the product. To wit, the best UI design in the world
won't matter if the hardware breaks down in a few weeks.

Usability & users with mental health issues and disorders

I'm in the definition phase of a site redesign for a mental health
and addiction association and rehab center. Besides following the W3C
standards in accessibility are there any guidelines or best practices
I should consider for users that suffer from more emotionally charged
or cognitive issues than physical limitations. Maybe there are
considerations for colour, layout, presentation of content etc.

MS Office app prototyping bake-off?

Hello IxDA,

My team of interaction designers is interested in determining the most
efficient and high-fidelity prototyping tool among three alternatives:
Visio, Access, and Excel.

They design interactions for a Windows-only, desktop-based financial
management software product.

The team's highest priority requirement for the prototyping tool: it has to
support dropping an image onto a canvas and overlaying workable controls
onto the image.

They would also like to be able to set tab order.

Guiding successful product development

Hi all,

I am looking for examples of brand/product/company guidelines or
principles that are/were truly useful to guide and direct
product/service development (not just advertising and marketing messages).

I asked this on the IA Institute members list and got a few:

* Luke W on Microsoft's use of design principles:

* Google UX principles

* Sony's design philosophy
