Microsoft Office 2013 revealed
Microsoft Office, used by more than a billion people and running on around 90 per cent of business PCs, is the single largest component of Microsoft’s revenue, bringing in more than $15billion per year for the company.
A preview of the new version, which will be called Office 2013 and is not expected to launch until next year, was unveiled at an event in San Francisco. Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s Chief Executive, claimed the software was “a new generation that brings some of the same boldness and beauty that we’ve shown you in Windows 8 and Windows Phone”. He added, “This is the most ambitious release of Microsoft office that we’ve ever done”, and emphasised that it was aimed as much at students, busy families and consumers as it was aimed at businesses.
The range of applications, including Word, Outlook, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint have all been updated to improve how they use the touch interfaces increasingly required by users who have phones and tablets. More than half of all users now have three devices or more, and 60 per cent say they use the same devices in their work and personal lives, Microsoft claims. Although note-taking programme OneNote has been comprehensively redesigned to include touch support, the bulk of the applications have been polished to improve their overall functionality so they work better on both tablets and PCs.
