Core Values for UCD and Agile


I am currently working on my master's thesis. To succeed, I will require
your help. The thesis will analyze possible interfaces between User
Centered Design and agile software development. As it is not possible to

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?
