I see that at some time in the recent past Visio 2016 has been updated and now has a new startup screen. It says Good Evening to me. How does it know? Will it offer me a Good Morning tomorrow? Being British I think I'd prefer it to say How Do You Do?  ::)

7am and I get a Good morning. Somebody got paid to code this, somebody got paid to spec and design it. What a total and utter waste of time.
All I can say is Well done sonny, you've improved your "Hello, world" program. I expect there is a good bug or two in there as well.

Just wait until noonish...which is neither morning nor evening.  😱  Bright side...I'm sure this was done pro bono.  😉  I'm just sure it was.

On the bright side, you don't have to open a blank drawing, then go back to the Backstage area just to get to Account or Settings.

This was a real pain before if you were testing things that required backstage access.

Hmmm.  Hopefully it's a prank.  Kinda pointless since it's anonymous.
