    Microsoft may release Office 2013 public preview today

    Steve Ballmer and top Office exec Kurt DelBene will kick off Microsoft's Worldwide Partners Conference

    By Gregg Keizer | Computerworld

    Microsoft may announce the first public preview of Office 2013, the likely name for its next productivity suite, at its annual gathering with partners later today.

    Although Microsoft has not publicly revealed its plans for Office 2013 -- which has been codenamed "Office 15" -- other than to say that a public beta would be rolled out "later this summer," there are clues that the company will unveil a sneak peek today.

    Thanks for the lead on the article, Nelson! I enjoy your article-addition threads.

    My body is ready.
    LOL, Coke! You're not too excited are you?!!

    I'm still using Office 2000 Pro on my 7, which runs fine, but a bit of a security vulnerabily. I downloaded Open Office in 8, which seems to work fine. I'll use the Office 2013 PP for awhile when released. Then we'll see about the price of final release for Office has gotten to be pricey.

    Hi there
    What can it possibly offer more than Office 2010 apart from yet more "Cloud Cuckoo Land" stuff.

    It might also "Offer" Licensing by Seat" -- an insidious mega expensive way of suckering users into ponying up HUGE amounts of money - compared with what they are paying for today.

    Don't get suckered into this stuff --it's MORE EXPENSIVE and offers LESS than what you get today.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the heads up on that, Jimbo. As always I respect and listen to your posts and advise.

    "Cloud Cuckoo Land" stuff.
    LOL and funny as hell!

    Hi there
    Thanks !!

    I think if I keep posting this sort of stuff Ms will "Take a Contract" out on me -- better get my Life Insurance sorted out. !!

    Anyway the Cloud is beginning to be treated with the scepticism it deserves -- recent "Outages" at several UK Banks have finally made consumers wary of "Remote servers" managed by a total bunch of unknown and unaccountable scrobbits which the FBI and other agencies -- US or otherwise - could shut down at a moments notice --remember the NZ operation Megaupload -- even though NZ Courts said the operation was LEGAL and "Off shored" facilities such as "Cheech and Chong" messing up every other thing that hasn't already gone wrong in the first place.

    Cheers

    I've been waiting well over a YEAR for this, I'm about to die from the wait!

    I'm looking forward to using the new metro styled UI, especially Outlook. I've seen some screenshots that look just stellar. Also, I claim myself to be a PowerPoint artist and from what I've heard, there's supposedly a new live tile theme that I want to play with along with the new themes, metro animations and slide transitions and all. Believe you me, it is a real PITA to replicate a metro animation in PowerPoint 2010, that's for sure!

I've just received an email from Microsoft with a link to download Office 2013 RTM Evaluation (I'm currently evaluating The Preview). I'm downloading it now, but I'm confuse, it doesn't say if I have to uninstall the Preview first or install on top of it? Can anyone enlighten a little fellow? :)
Last summer, when office 2013 preview first came out, I opted for the binary download. I believe it was an exe file and I still have a copy of the download. But yesterday I opened up OneNote, I got prompted for an activation key. The only thing that I think might have triggered that, was that I...

Well, one of my prayers has been answered. You can disable the animations and the smooth typing "feature" of the Office 2013 Preview. When you can type fast, that smooth animation appears like a delay and the cursor is unable to keep up with your typing. Very annoying. It's a registry change...
