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.

Good question. Maybe it's going the way of Visual Fox Pro. Access is a handy tool and it would be a shame to see it thrown to the wayside. Who knows though, hard to tell what Microsoft is trying to accomplish these days other than avoid having to maintain multiple user interfaces by merging the tablet and desktop experience which deep down we all know we don't want.

It would be a shame the only bit of MS Office that I need is Access. The rest Libre Office is just about good enough
