Microsoft "Today we are able to share details on a number of new and improved features in each of the core applications for Office 15, thanks to several people with access to the early Technical Preview code. From Touch and Reading Mode to a Weather Bar feature in Outlook 15, we have exclusive details on Microsoft's plans." Looking good. Not fully Metro though. Bummer.

Compatibility?

My only concern is will they improve MS Office 15's compatibility with LibreOffice and Google Docs? I know that when they make a MAC version of this my assistant will try to use it instead of LibreOffice. I, unfortunately, am sure all the math equations I type into Writer will not display correctly for her and she'll be disappointed that she will have to go back to using that free cross platform office suite.

Honestly though, I m glad that the ribbon looks much more subtle in the screenshots (excluding the screenshot of OneNote). I am glad to see MS improve their UI on this product.

If they keep true with their attitude in previous releases, it will be even more incompatible.
