Hi there
It was HORRIBLE
re-installed Office 2010 afte a couple of hours of trying 2013.

The new office seems like Windows 8 itself to not understand if it's running on a desktop / tablet / mobile phone and fails to satisfy ANY of those environments completely.

This version of Offce and Windows 8 itself (for desktop) will become the new Vista.

Windows 8 is just FINE on the new Windows 8 smartphones -- to be released in about 3 weeks - but if you've had a peek at them --Ms has got a winner there.

Windows 7 still rules the desktop - especially if you aren't interested in touch screens etc.

BTW for those who say W8 is faster etc -- just tidy up your start services and move the Windows 7 OS to an SSD -- and then performance is fine.

Cheers

Excellent news. I've been using the 2013 preview since it hit MSDN, I'll check for the RTM. Office 2013 Outlook in particular resolves a number of annoying and irritating bugs in Office 2010 Outlook that have been a constant nagging PITA, such as the inability to properly handle saving authentication credentials when connecting to proxied Exchange servers. No problem with Office 2013. The UI is also quite a bit more consistent, apparently the Office 2011 (Mac) team had some cross-pollination there even if just by osmosis of working in the same company .

If Office 2013 appears in Q1 of 2013, does anyone have a rough idea of when Office 2010 is likely to disappear from retailers like Newegg or Amazon? I can't recall when Office 2003 and 2007 actually became difficult to find. Does the current version tend to go away immediately on the release of a new version or are there periods when you can easily get either?

I am running 2007 now and might upgrade to 2010 near the end of it's availability (hopefully at a closeout price) to gain a few more years of Office support. I will avoid Office 2013 for the duration if possible.

ignatzatsonic, you can still get Windows 3.1 on amazon.

Seriously, though, I can't imagine 2010 being scarce any time soon. There is no shortage of 2007 right now on amazon. Newegg drops stuff much faster, I couldn't find it on there. I'm no fan of 8 but I like 2013. Trust me, I understand if you want to skip it. Looks stupid but there are lots of tiny improvements which make it worth my while.

Thanks, Colonel.

I hadn't really looked around to see if 2007 was still out there in a factory-sealed state. Maybe I can hold out for a year or two after 2013 appears.

I actually despised Office 2010, it was much less intuitive than Office 2007, Microsoft moved everything around and I couldn't find anything because nothing was in any obvious place to look, it was all hidden somewhere in heiroglyphics on one of those idiotic "ribbon bars". Office 2013 moves things around also, but it's far more intuitive about how it operates. It operates more like a tabbed browser application than like the mess that was Office 2010.

Word of warning for those intending to upgrade from the preview to the release version -- the mail profiles in the preview version do *not* cleanly load into the release version. Weird things happen with complex mail profiles. My recommendation is that you uninstall the preview, delete the mail profile you used for the preview version, as well as the mail backup files on the hard drive, and start over from scratch re-entering your account information in a fresh install. You still delete your profile through Control Panel->Mail like with previous versions of Outlook.
