New in 2003/2007
When Office 2003 was released, the only application that showed obvious changes from the earlier version was Outlook.
Slipstick.com does a good job describing the changes and providing useful links.
Also Office System 2007
Here is the Microsoft Office 2003 Editions Product Guide
Here is Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 product overview
2010 adds the Ribbon.
There is an apocryphal story that when Outlook was first considered, it was a PDA, kind of an electronic date book.
One Microsoft manager, supposedly, questioned adding an e-mail reader, since any one who wanted to do that, could just do it on the Internet.
Another story was that Microsoft was a little slow recognizing the Internet, because their managers were too old. They were in their late 20's and when they went to school the net had not progressed that far from the Well in San Francisco.
When the young graduates entered the company, they were used to Internet access from their dorm rooms. MS woke up and swung the ship around almost overnight.
