Look, I'm really proud that your organization has deployed Office 2007. Now get over yourselves and change the default file format back to Office XP / 2003 compatibility mode, so that you don't make your customers and external colleagues feel like idiots for asking "What's a docx (or xlsx) - can't you just send it to me as a Word doc (or Excel sheet)?"

ESPECIALLY for Mac users, who don't have the luxury of an Excel or PowerPoint "compatibility pack" in Office 2004.

Thank you,
The World
