Microsoft Office 2013 beta coming this week?
Although unconfirmed, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is expected to unveil a beta version of the upcoming Office 2013 suite.

The company has a news conference planned on July 16th, but industry sources are the ones claiming it will be the new Office.



As anticipated, Office 2013 will have deep integration to the upcoming Windows 8, and the beta will most likely work with the upcoming Windows 8 Release Preview to give users a look into both before buying.

In the past, Microsoft has launched the final product 28 weeks after the public beta. If this is true, the expected release will be January 2013.

Windows 8 and its Metro UI will launch in late October with a range of price tags. Additionally, the company is releasing Windows RT for ARM-based tablets, Windows Phone 8 for smartphones and Windows 8 Pro for Intel/AMD-based tablets.

    I am sticking with my cracked version of 10 thanks.

    Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy!
    Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".

    Is spreadsheet technology really advancing so fast that we need a new version every year?

    Security updates & a a face lift for the crowd to go "ooh, awe" over... that & another 3 year (ish, cut me some slack) anniversary of the "hack our security contest".

    Like Clam_up & aldan said, other than cosmetics is word processing & spreadsheets come to a point in protein folding that we need ground breaking new looks & mega bucks spent on new licensing?

    It was called a 'snow job' back when I was a kid.

    I use Office 2010 + Ubit Menu (http://www.ubit.ch/software/ubitmenu-languages/, legally free for personal use). Ubit Menu gives you a "Menu" tab in Office '07/'10 that has the entire interface from Office 2003 (the last one that didn't use "ribbon" menus).

    The very last thing I want in a program that has literally thousands of options and functions, is for them to completely retool the GUI to a different philosophy. Yeesh. They never learn, obviously enough.
