Features, Office Microsoft has released a consumer preview for Office 2013. Highlighting the age-old internal tug-of-war between the Office and Windows divisions within Microsoft, it's just a desktop application, no Metro, and the only nod to that whole touch/tablet-thing is a special mode that does very little. So, Windows 8 is just around the corner, and still not a single serious Metro application. Not even Microsoft's own flagship suite - heck, not even a single application within that suite - could be adapted to Metro in time. Serious vote of confidence from the Office division there.

version control systems and dropbox-like sync is not rocket science and microsoft should have beaten the market with a modern product, not continued lagging behind. they seem not even close to a modern solution like you propose. it will take someone new to eat their lunch. and all the potential upstarts I knew about have been acquired and dissolved.
