The Windows SuperSite which is ran by Paul Thurrott has screenshots of Microsoft Office 12 Beta 1. It has many different galleries: Installation, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, FrontPage, and OneNote.

Paul Thurrott has supplied some nice photos of what we can expect in the future version of Windows. People have said that Windows Vista 5270 has some nice Tablet PC enhancements to it, where one of the really nice features is the ability for the computer to learn how you write.
