Features, Office "On Monday in San Francisco we took the wraps off of the new Office's touch experience designed for Windows 8. We showed the new touch-optimized Windows 8-style app for OneNote, and we showed how we've touch-enabled Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other apps on the desktop. The new Office is designed for a great experience whether you're sitting on a couch with a tablet, or at a desk with a mouse and keyboard. It makes common tasks fast, fluid, and intuitive, while still enabling the rich capabilities required to create high-quality documents. In this post I'll walk you through the thinking, engineering process and design framework we used to reimagine these experiences for touch."

I'd trust an actual review, which states that touch support is still garbage, over a company site giving the company spiel:

Garbage? Really?!? That seems pretty harsh -- and illogical. The author doesn't seem to understand that Touch doesn't have to be universally accessible within Office in order to be USEFUL for the broad number of purposes. Probably a liberal arts major.
