I noticed Office 2013 is on MSDN so downloaded and installed.
So far I actually like it. The colour scheme takes some getting used to but I'm sure it will become normal after a few days use.
Some highlights for me so far:
- Smooth selection of text
- Editing PDF files
- Outlook bigger buttons for changing the mode
- Smooth animation when browsing the hierarchy of folders
- Auto Save to skydrive (would have been amazing if microsoft didnt just remove it from office 365!!)
So basically its working quite well. Much better job than windows 8.
