    note liking the CAPSLOCK all over the place, buttons etc. And on a 24" screen there is so much white space..

    The non-cloud streaming version is available from TechNet/MSDN.

    I'm trying to install Office 365 using the Click to Run installer and it's just sitting there at "0% - Configuring..." and then it just fails saying couldn't install - without giving any error messages! Any ideas what I can do to get it to install? Running Windows 7 x64 with Office 2010 x86.

    Try either of these download links...

    x86: professionalplus_en-us_x86.exe
    x64: professionalplus_en-us_x64.exe

    It did the same for me in school, took one of the laptops home and it installed fine. So I guess there is somthing about the proxy is didnt like or something is getting blocked somwhere down the line for us.

    Did get it to install on another laptop in school using the exe download from technet though and that went fine.

    So how does it compare to Office 2010? Any real improvement? From the screenshots I've seen, it looks the same from a distance.

    I presume also the file format is exactly the same?

    I don't like the blue of Outlook now. Wish it could be changed.

    Be warned - don't use the Empty deleted items function in Outlook 2013. Both my colleague and I did so and it deleted the entire mailbox, including custom folders, contacts, calendar, tasks, the whole lot!

    Luckily I managed to get the emails back through the Outlook 2010 install on my primary desktop, and so I lost no emails, but lost all my contacts list. Had to start again on a new mailbox because I could not send emails either!

    Took me ages to get my mailbox sorted after this.

    We sent feedback to Microsoft, I will stick with Office 2010 myself until they fix the bug.

    There is a thread here: Outlok 2013 - Empty Deleted Items deletes everything from mailbox?

    It's a bit worrying something so simple as emptying the recycle bin wasn't spotted. I get the impression Microsoft (at times) seem to focus on security more than anything else these days. Just as well it's not the real RTM.

    The interface is far too white for me. I really do hope we get the option back to change the colour scheme as this new white metro look is awful.
