One new Outlook 2013 feature is the People view and Contact card. I don't like them - they are not user-friendly in my opinion - and I spend a lot of time trying to help people use their contacts because they are confused by the contact card. They can't find attachments, edit the fields not visible on the contact card, or open the familiar old contact form.

Maybe it's just a case of not being used to it... Windows 8 missing Start menu takes some getting used to and now I prefer not having it.

What do you think? Share your opinion.

This screenshot is the People view, with a contact card in the reading pane.

I don't like this new view and i hate the new people search. It includes results from the autocomplete cache. WTF.
