    There's not too much to get used to if you're already using 2010, just the colour scheme looks a bit odd but I'm getting used to the Windows 3.0 look

    sometimes i wish there was a way to thanks 2x or something. Ive been struggling with that for months now haha..

    downloading it now, ran the beta for a while but reverted to 2010 hopefully this is a bit more polished and stable.

    One thing, I am pretty sure you could right click the programs running icon (windows 7) then click the shortcut lauching a second instance?

    Yup you could, it also worked as I put earlier on by just launching it again from the start menu

    I always used to just launch a second instance from the run prompt i.e. WinKey+R > excel. Bit of a PITA juggling which window is the active one when you go to open a spreadsheet, still.

    I still hate the ALL CAPS RIBBON they've gone with in 2013. I reckon takeup will be quicker than any previous Office though, with the bundled version in RT and Skydrive already being updated to it.

    Middle-clicking does the same thing (as long as you're not on a laptop, of course!).

    It isn't just Office, it does it for every application.

    I thought the same about Windows 8 - all the nice rounded edges of windows and pastel-shades have gone...
