"it's expected Office 2013 will be heavy on touch-friendly features"

Paul, you forgot to mention that you can also expect Office to cost it's usual $200 plus depending on which version you buy. As for Libreoffice? Still free.

Office 2013 is hideous. Microsoft is obsessed with "Metro" and Office 2013 has not be spared.

The menus are now in ALL CAPS. The entire interface is white with no contrast whatsoever between the various parts of the interface. It looks like Office did back in the Windows 3.1 days.

Ummm... I believe black on white is the definition of contrast actually.

Hence why I refuse to touch Office 2013, or Windows 8 for that matter, with any length pole whatsoever. M$ is completely ****ing the consumer over once again. It's not as if M$ didn't learn not to **** over the consumer when they came out with Vista. Since they oh so obviously DIDN'T learn that lesson the first time around, we might as well teach it to them once again by NOT buying Office 2013 OR Windows 8 or anything whatsoever associated with them. Stick with what works, M$!!!!!!

We've been writing letters and spreadsheets for hundreds of years and and we never had to reinvent the pen every year in order to do so. However every other year Microsoft tries to convince us that we need to spend another $300 for a new Office suite to do just that.

Car companies come out with a new $20,000+ car model every year. It doesn't mean they expect you to buy the new version every year.

Jesus you people are so entitled... God forbid MS releases a new version of Office every 3 years for $120. They are in the business of making money after all.

Don't 100% agree with you there. I can see microsoft upgrading access database. If you have ever worked with databases you would agree with me. Maintaining a access database is always work :P. One of the reasons most people opt for MySQL, well that and its free for most purposes. It just sucks for me because i have to take a 4 month course over office 2010 when right around the corner is the next release:p.

To be honest, if you know how to use Office 2007, 2010, or 15, you know how to use all of them - the UI is very similar. If you're coming from 2003 and use some of the more advanced features though, you might have trouble.

Don't worry, businesses will still be using 2010 for quite awhile. Especially if 2013 is geared towards touch screens. The company I work for is just now upgrading to 2010 from mostly 2003.
