Comment: ITS A GREAT THINGS
Good: The mouse movement is better; the 'recent' section now shows the last folder opened, nit only the last files.
Bad: Publisher's a nightmare
Comment: Publisher 2010 files open in 2013 with the final sentences of articles etc. not shown. They're there, but to see them you have to alter the word spacing, which - if you have a lot of 2010 items you want to see in 2013 - is a chore. But you can't print the whole article as it was without altering the spacing. I produce newsletters, magazines etc. and I regard this as an upgrade killer, Mr. Gates.
Good: Resume Reading,Work Together.
Bad: Not released yet
Comment: Microsoft most famous and widely used product MS Office, Now they released preview of new MS Office 2013 which will come later this year. Best Part Microsoft has added new feature with the changing time that will attract large number of users.On this new Office 13 we can
Resume Reading:-Word 2013 automatically bookmarks your last-visited area where you can take some time, read and return back to from where you left off, even on a different PC or tablet.
Work Together:-Multiple users can work on the same presentation at the same time with the help of PowerPoint Web App.

Good: New Presenter View, Modern clear Interface
Bad: It's not out yet:(
Comment: A clear sign of Microsoft's strategy to deliver on their new vision of modern and clean interfaces.
The motion of doing work with the swiping transitions and modern quick look buttons makes this version of Office a big step up.
I'm already planning to install this on all my computers, my families computers and recommend it to my friends.
Good: Appearance and speed
Bad: Has obviously been designed to be "touch friendly" and thus is less functional when using a mouse
Comment: I use office everyday as a science master's student and this version seems to be the best yet. It's certainly faster to load than 2010, and extra menus and features mean that getting everyday stuff done is faster.
Office 2013 is the first version of office to have the "mac feel" about it where everything seems to glide and slide about, making it very appealing on the eyes.
I already use cloud storage services such as dropbox and skydrive to backup my important files. This version of office seems to have in built skydrive options (similar to previous versions) however is far faster and functional, which simplifies the process.
Overall, I'm very impressed. Shame about not being more mouse friendly, but I guess laptops are becoming more touch orientated anyway.
Good: Looks like its going to be more efficiant
Bad: Maybe impracticable for Desktop Use
Comment: I Like the fact that they are designing applications and an Operating system to run on tablets and touchscreen devices. A bonus of this is that they will be more system friendly and not so power 'hogging' to something of which is quite basic. I really hope that they will suprise everyone and bring alongside there touch interfaces a normal version - perhaps in the same package and as you launch installer you can choose between 'Standard' or 'Touch enhanced' for example. Opinions based on heavy Desktop PC use, and on my tablet in between - Also hope this is going to be available for Android, They may of lost the market to Polaris already...
