Office 2013 is now ready for lift-off, but will it soar?

- +

I got my hands on Office 2013 a.k.a. Office 15 or even Office 365. The last one is the online subscription model, being the ideal version for Microsoft because you are essentially hooked forever. This comes in two versions with access to different features you can look up and starts at $100 (about 3,000 baht) per month. The advantage is you get access to the latest version at all times and you can access it from anywhere. 

Office 2013 or Office 15? These are the two different names for the same product, just like Office 2010 is also called Office 14. Thank you Microsoft, because sorting through all the options isn't confusing enough.

In this article, I'll focus mainly on the desktop Office 2013 applications. The new versions only run under Windows 7 and 8, not even Vista is supported let alone XP. There are differences between Win 7 and 8 but mostly how they start off. As far as I can see most of the changes are cosmetic and layout changes with a few bits of additional functionality. There is for example a new formatting panel on the right of PowerPoint.
