Features, Office "On Monday in San Francisco we took the wraps off of the new Office's touch experience designed for Windows 8. We showed the new touch-optimized Windows 8-style app for OneNote, and we showed how we've touch-enabled Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other apps on the desktop. The new Office is designed for a great experience whether you're sitting on a couch with a tablet, or at a desk with a mouse and keyboard. It makes common tasks fast, fluid, and intuitive, while still enabling the rich capabilities required to create high-quality documents. In this post I'll walk you through the thinking, engineering process and design framework we used to reimagine these experiences for touch."

Hm, thank you for sharing with us that your immediate surrounding aren't cleaned for weeks on end...

(and hey, screens are much easier to clean than keyboards; but seriously, who knows how long the keyboards might remain so universal - a move "back" to the model of drafting tables could be interesting)
