Microsoft is calling its Office 2013 suite, Office 2013 signals a shift to document collaboration and anywhere any device access. Notably, Microsoft is introducing an on-demand subscription version of Office 2013 that can be streamed from any Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC, with the ability to sync settings and documents.

No problem mate. It doesn't help that the Microsoft Office Customer Preview link is also for Office 365.

Yes kodi pointed that out when I posted my 1st link then I eventually found the same links as you posted for the full installers and key so good to have a choice of installation options.

Outlook 2013 is certainly plain vanilla looking. I don't see any option to change the color so far. Anyone else?

For a person that only uses Word (2007) for non-business uses, is there really any good reason to install this? The fact that it is apparently designed to work with cloud is not something that excites me at all.

Here is what I have learned so far the color of the opening menu on the left, file tab and status bar are the same as the color of the metro tile or icon ? (using Win 8 ATM).

Excel - Green & InfoPath - Purple

The only other customization I see is changing the pattern in the upper right hand corner after opening a blank document in certain apps like Word then selecting File > options.

I think they botched it like the Windows 8 color schemes, the next versions of Windows and office should be aptly named Windows/Office botulism instead of Windows/Office Next.

I installed it last night after a few beers, I look at it this morning and it's bloody awful....I cant easily see what emails have not been read and that makes it pretty useless.

I think the colour scheme should be named "a wet day in Salford" that converts to "a wet day in Detroit" for the US, I doubt businesses will be rolling this out or sick days and staff suicides will jump considerably.
