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.

Does the grammar checker improve over time? I mean, I think they were quite horrible, last time I heard - so there's presumably plenty of room of improvement.

Might be useful at least as a foreign language writing aid, a scenario which possibly covers most people writing in EN ( http://www.osnews.com/permalink?527180 - see, he could use it some ...what does that post even say?)
