Microsoft just announced the consumer preview of Office 2013/Office 365 (Download Office 2013 Consumer Preview) which includes a new metro interface and also several other interesting new features and changes which you can read about in our Office 2013 features post.
While Office 2013 is designed keeping Windows 8 and the new Metro UI, that Microsoft has been using for most of its products, in mind, it will also work on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. However, if you are someone like me, you might now like the Metro interface on Windows 7.
I was able to download the Office 2013 preview and use it for an hour or so. Office 2013 preview has Word 2013, PowerPoint 2013, Excel 2013, Outlook 2013, OneNote 2013, Access 2013 and Publisher 2013 included in the bundle. While not much has changed since the earlier announcement of Office 15, here is a screenshot tour of the new Office 2013.
New Splash Screens
All Office 2013 products sport a new splash screen which goes follows the standards of the Metro UI.
