Brief: Microsoft Chooses Third Color Scheme For Office 2007

The "silver" theme was recently announced in the blog of Jensen Harris, lead program manager on the Office user experience team. The other two options are blue and black.

Microsoft Corp. is planning to offer three color schemes for Office 2007, letting users choose the option that best fits their tastes.

The third and final scheme called silver was recently introduced in the blog of Jensen Harris, lead program manager on the Office user experience team. The other two options are blue and black.

The silver scheme is meant to provide a neutral canvas that doesn't distract the eye, making the document design standout, Harris said. For people who want a bit more color, they can switch to the other schemes through the options tag in any of the user interface programs.

Microsoft expects to finish Office's UI design in a few weeks. Office 2007 is expected to ship next year.
