    Will certainly give it a try. Just wondering what's really new inside. Maybe the skin and appearance compare to previous version. Let's see. Thanks for sharing.

    This 3 year "forced upgrade" is ridiculous. I'm still using XP and will go on using XP until hardware no longer supports it. Then I'll go open source with Linux. Microsoft can go suck on an egg.

    not only we are invited to migrate to Windows 8 but also to Microsoft office 2013, every 3 years we have to migrate all computer hardware also:)

    Imagine inserting a Bing map app, right inside Excel, to map spreadsheet data!

    While Word and Powerpoint seems okay, OneNote suffers a lot. It's really ugly compared to the 2007 version. Good thing I decided to stop using it.
