Office 2013 consumer preview released

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.
