Same here I've not long got the 2010 version and that has everything I need. I don't need Access or Outlook so the Student version is enough, and cheaper, and even that has Power Point which I don't need either.

I saw about the Preview this morning on Facebook but running the video preview didn't impress me so don't think I'll bother downloading.

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

One thing that annoys me is the Ribbon won't stay minimized. In Outlook 2010 there is a Minimize Ribbon option you can checkmark in the quick access toolbar to hide it until you want it. That option is now missing. I have outlook setup to open the next item when I delete an open email. I close the ribbon, delete the email, and bam, it open again when the next email is displayed. Outlook 2010 didn't do this. 99% of the time all I need is the quick access toolbar so the open ribbon is just wasting screen space.

Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1

I tried using Outlook 2013 as my primary Email client and every time I looked at the interface it nearly gave me a headache. I hate the look of it. I'm going to continue using Office 2007 Home and Student and Windows Live Mail 2011 as they have the aero look which is just better and I can stand to look at. I hate how everything has to be Metroified with Microsoft.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
Posted this on the W8 Forums --but I can't download this even with a VALID TechNet subscription from W8 (which presumably Office v2013 is designed to run from).

I'm quite satisfied currently with Office 2010 so I haven't a clue what this version brings to the table.

Anyway enc screenshot of the TechNet download problem. (remember this is from W8 -- I haven't tried a download yet using W7).

It minimizes, just differently now. Click the Exit Full Screen Mode button in the top right corner beside the question mark. Ribbon disappears. If you want it back, go to the very top of the screen and click anywhere in the gray bar (which isn't there unless you put your mouse up there) and left-click. Ribbon appears. When you're done with the ribbon, click anywhere below it. Ribbon disappears.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

And here I thought Windows 8's logo was boring. Whoever designed that spartan logo and interface for Office needs to have his marbles checked, they look so freaking bland that I cannot describe my displeasure in words.

Also, I hate Ribbon, but this isn't a problem that began with this iteration so I digress.
