That's really bad news they arbitrarily decide not to support their best operating system which after all limits their possible use an adoption. Don't know if there is anything really worth new in Office 2013 to justify an upgrade, some day I'll try the beta.

With every day less system compatibility (without any technical reason really) and that useless ribbon are compelling reasons to NOT upgrade beyond Office 2003.
Funny thing is that MS gives me even more reasons to use OpenOffice instead

Ha... they must be joking, less support for XP is a no brainer, but Vista? C'mon, even Millenium had more chance in life... I must not concern about it since I use 7, but some Vista users just love their OS, that is not fair.

Windows 7 should prevail because of it enhacements over prevous iterations, not because office 2013 will work on it... even worse, I hate that new interface, I suffered from office 2003-2007, OK, then 2010, great improvements... 2013? That is a no, no to me...

Sorry MS, we are going back instead of going forward...

P.S.: I need to say that I hate the UI because it reminds me of Windows 3.11 and its color schemes... I really had bad times with that OS

I love 2013 from what I've seen.

Always liked the ribbon from 2007, and I don't care about the colour scheme, just give me functionality!!.
Better integration with the cloud is a driver for me, I'm currently using Google docs, but I find that extremely frustrating and really not compatible with MS Office so anything MS can do to support this I'm up for. I use office all the time and the ability for me to access spreadsheets, ppt and word docs from anywhere is exactly what I need.

Office 2013 seems to bring no "WoW" factors to the table so for anybody running Office 2010 there isn't any compelling reason to switch.

Office 365 (the next iteration) I believe is going to be Cloud only - so I won't be using it.

Again what is this passion for "The Cloud" that Ms seems to have fallen madly in love with.

With a 32 GB micro sdHC card in my phone I can have / send / print docs anywhere anytime -- I don't need or want anything to do with the cloud.

When I go away sometimes I go to remote regions where there ISN'T any Internet or normal phone coverage -- only a Satellite phone will work. I can still work with a small netbook and a portable disk or two including the smartphone which is fine when I'm back in phone coverage.

I'm not sure either of how important document sharing really is outside corporate Lans. There's plenty of social networking sites where people can exchange stuff if they want to.

My data is MINE and I'm not entrusting it to some "Cheech and Chong" outfit on servers I know absolutely nothing about - still less have any say in what other content is stored on these servers which might get them pulled at a moments notice.

I get the feeling that rather like the saying "Los Angeles is 64 suburbs searching for a city" ( I actually like parts of L.A BTW) the Cloud is simply a concept looking for an application.

I think "Cloud Cuckoo Land" better describes the whole process.

XP is out like it or not. People will not update their Office unless they have a need to. They will run what ever Office they have or want on Windows 7 if it can be done. Putting Office on Windows 8 to me would be a joke. How about this, a Operating System called Office that does nothing but Office procedures. No IM, web browsing, camera, joy sticks, email only through Office, no playing movies, music. No IT magic to stop all this stuff because it isn't there. Name it Just Office. If this happens I want 1% of the gross.

I am really getting tired of all the hate. Not just towards Office 2013, but Windows 8 in general.

I had my own doubts and prejudice towards all this, but I actually tried my best to use it the way it's supposed to be used and, most importantly, make the best of it. Just because one doesn't use all the new features doesn't mean one shouldn't use it at all, at least not in this stage while they're still just Previews and are free!

Yes, I cannot see a reason to upgrade from any older version of Office to 2013 either, but that doesn't necessarily mean that 2013 is bad in the first place.


A bit off topic now, but I'm getting the feeling that the hate towards Metro is the same, if not bigger, than the hate towards Vista... And this is for absolutely no good reason i.e. it's just blown completely out of proportions. Half the people that hate it didn't even try it, or if they did, they couldn't understand how to make the best of it, instead just trying to force it to act the way they want to.

If you want complete control of how you can f**k up your system, or even your whole computer, then use Linux and go nuts; Windows isn't like that, like it or not.
