Features, Office So, Office 2013 is a desktop application with a new look (which I personally happen to like, ridiculous 'streaming' installation notwithstanding). Then there's OneNote MX - the first Metro Office application. It uses a rather interesting contextual radial menu to get things done - quite fascinating. It's in the Windows Store starting now. I've been playing with it for a bit, and I must say, there's a huge chance I'll be writing my OSNews articles in OneNote MX from now on; the ability to have multiple different text areas and pictures like in a real-world note/clipbook is very, very useful. Nice that it syncs across devices, too. Be sure to take a look - this is an indication of a possible future Metro Office.

I've seen similar dial selectors a few times for use with tablets. I think Autodesk Sketchbook Pro: ( http://images.autodesk.com/adsk/images/sketchbook_pro_image_enhance... ) was the first time I came across it several years ago. There are probably earlier examples as well.

There are two or three different radial selectors in that app. See the bottom left of this screen: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/limage?siteID=123112&imageID=1...
