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.

The major apps in office are word and excel and outlook hands down. The rest is filler for 90% of users.

PowerPoint too ? I would never have thought...

Well, what most people do with Powerpoint shouldn't be done with Powerpoint anyway.

But yes, it is used a lot.

Same can be said about Excel. If there's any application that is used with reckless abandon for every and all tasks it's Excel.

Don't know... I have seen many people using powerpoint as a virtual equivalent of the transparent slide of the old days, which seems fine to me.

Though I have also seen some horrible aberrations on my side too... Like using PowerPoint as a DTP software, UGH !
