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. But it's far from the full OneNote. It's basically My First OneNote.

Did you expect otherwise? Every other Metro app MS has made has been really stripped down compared to its desktop equivalents.

Not sure what I expected other than not colorful rectangles about as useful as the apps themselves. I've an idea Metro will be as useful as desktop gadgets which have just been dumped supposedly for security failings.
