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.

Yeah, other apps have had radial menus.

In Microsoft's Office Next blog today they post a link to a wikipedia article that lists some previous radial menu apps.

The "Radial Menus" section of that article has a link to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radial_menu
which lists "Notable implementations" - apps that have implemented radial (or "pie") menus.
