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.

yes. it was sarcasm. but I actually disagree with thom, I think the office 2013 direction is very in line with windows 8, and is probably as much of a shining endorsement as a slow organization can make. both office 2013 and windows 8 look like fruity pieces of shit
