Features, Office So, Office 2013 is a desktop application with a new look (which I personally happen to like, ridiculous 'streaming' installation notwithstanding). Then there's OneNote MX - the first Metro Office application. It uses a rather interesting contextual radial menu to get things done - quite fascinating. It's in the Windows Store starting now. I've been playing with it for a bit, and I must say, there's a huge chance I'll be writing my OSNews articles in OneNote MX from now on; the ability to have multiple different text areas and pictures like in a real-world note/clipbook is very, very useful. Nice that it syncs across devices, too. Be sure to take a look - this is an indication of a possible future Metro Office.

I have the current 2010 version installed. I'm utterly underwhelmed, but then I sold my self to evernote a long time ago. I use evernote for EVERYTHING!

I'm willing to be educated though, so I'll check out this new version... when I have some kind of machine that will run it. (assuming as it's Metro, it doesn't run on Windows 7??)
