Excel finally allows the opening of two completely separate windows instances again so you can have one on one screen and another on a different screen. Yay, they broke that back in 2007 and it has only taken them three versions to make it right again.
hooray what a silly thing to bork up
About bloomin' time!
That was so useful.
It can be done in the preceding versions on W7, but only if you right click on the active excel icon in the taskbar and select Excel, it will spawn a completely seperate instance rather than a new 'tab' inside the already running instance, then you can move one to one screen and one to another.
Edit, Actually this works for all Office applications.

The PDF editing is pretty awesome as well
What I'd like to know more about wrt office (we only have a nominal number of Office installs) is its reported ability to save in ODF 1.2 and OOXML strict.
Is OOXML strict the default? can you make strict the default ? what about old documents, does it save them in OOXML strict?
It has important implications given recent govt strategy:
Have you you seen the new Excel Survey Dedicated WebApp? :-) that allows you to create a survey of some form and it populates the data live, allowing you to have real time states etc. real simple!
also, have you seen the apps that are now embedded across the Office 2013 range.. like if you have an address in an email it automatically shows you in Bing, and appointments it picks it out of the email and tells you when your available etc.
They also have the new powerpoint presentation mode! ;-)
All Pretty Good Stuff, As this thread is about Excel though see here - Excel Blog - Excel Web App - What's now available in a browser near you?
is it available to VL yet?
the KMS host add is now also up
hmm seems the licensing site has changed.. neither of my logins work..
I've already got a select few of the staff from each school using 2013 with good results so far and a view to roll it out January 2013 if only for the great 365 support.
