Cool Microsoft Office 2013

Here's the review so far:

Personally, I love it. Easy to use, with some major differences, such as SkyDrive compatibility.
Here's the couple pictures I have now. I'll post them later. (If I can hit the Print Screen button fast enough -- these things load QUICK!!!)









So far, all that is different is instead of only having three colors [Blue(default), Silver, and Black] It now has 42 different "Themes" (the one in the last picture is called "Circuitry") with various different combinations, such as Light Gray, and Lunchbox.

Loading is faster, and the scrolling and typing feel has changed (to that "aero scroll" or whatever its called, where it isn't really all that "bumpy" but a rather smooth feeling.) Plenty of features. If anyone wants a specific picture or has a question, just ask.

THERE IS 0 COMPATIBILITY WITH WINDOWS XP. (x32 or x64 bit processor)

I haven't heard that yet, so I can't confirm it. I'll update as I get knowledge. I'm surprised that Ronbo, Intrep_Ed, and Daytrepper haven't chimed in yet. Usually we are the ones that are UTD on these things.

Unless you have Office 2013 Pro Plus like I do....heh heh!

I've installed it on one PC running WIn 7 Pro and wasn't really impressed with it. Same goofy cell phone style icons and trying to shuffle you off to the "cloud" for storage of your documents. I don't see any advantages over Office 2011. I like Skydrive and use it extensively for hosting pictures I post here along with large file storage/sharing. There's a standalone Skydrive app that allows you to synch all your PCs and access any of the pictures stored on anyone of them.
Themes? meh! I'm more concerned with document templates and the ability to share documents with older versions of office.

I'm continuing with Office 2007 & 2011 on several machines and liking it!

I have Pro+, and so far I love it, it has all of the features I need, and I just find it funny that the schools can't even try to install this on their cruddy machines, because they are too busy down-grading them from Win 7 to Win XP, its all just part of their obsolete conspiracy theory. Its just funny that students know the WiFi password for the schools, when the Tech Teachers don't!!

And just what exactly are the features you "need"? Eye Candy Themes? It clicks instead of clacks? What kind of content/documents do you create and what features does 2013 make that content creation better? Sounds like you're on the bandwagon because it's the newest....not necessarily that it has any benefits that apply to you and your documents.

I'm with Free93corde. I'm betting the version you have will be tied to that machine it's installed on now.

The version I have will install on multiple machines legally. I've also got access to pretty much everything that Microsoft has. I try new software out and if it has merits..I use it. If it's crap like WIn 8 IMO then it gets removed and thrown in the trash.

You are a Genius in this area. But seamless SkyDrive collaboration is helpful.

Same regarding the multi-machine thing. And we are also subscribed to the "Microsoft Action Pack" service (or whatever its called now)

i've never found a reason to upgrade beyond the 2007 enterprise version i have.
don't need a new one with new looks that you have to re get used to.
i'd rather keep the familiar one as long as it's compatible. as for cloud, i still don't like the idea of my shit somewhere on the net. storage is cheaper at home, and more practical.

If Office 2013 has the tiled look that Windows 8 has, I'll stick with Office 2010, and Windows 7.
I think Windows 8 will go the way of Vista.

Regarding moving your license for 2013 from one PC to another. Microsoft announced today that they are changing their licensing agreement and you WILL be able to move it from one PC to another.

http://blogs.office.com/b/office-new...nsferable.aspx

I've been testing 2013 in an enterprise environment on our Windows 8 Tablets that we will be rolling out to our sales team. I absolutely love both. The metro start screen is starting to grow on me and I've learned a lot of keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures to make it a really streamlined experience. I think outlook has gone under a very nice visual upgrade. The layout seems to make a bit more sense. I really like it. The only thing I don't like about Windows 8 so far is that I can't manage my 2010 Hyper-V VMs from it. It's not backwards compatible. It's really no big deal as I have Hyper-V Manager 2010 installed on a 2008 R2 machine and we are starting to move our environment to 2012 as well. It would still be nice to access the 2010 manager right from Windows 8 though.
