What happened to the File menu?

The user interface has been significantly redesigned in the following 2007 Microsoft Office system programs: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook (in the composing and reading windows). The File menu has been replaced with the Microsoft Office Button Office button image .

For more information about the Microsoft Office Button, see What and where is the Microsoft Office Button?.
