Microsoft Office 15 Preview for Windows 8(0)

If you want to know more about Office 15, Win Super Site has a detailed walkthrough of the Office 15 Technical Preview.

Microsoft has made Office 15 Technical Preview available to a select group of people under the obligation of a non-disclosure agreement. But since such things seldom work, information and screenshots of the office suite is pouring out. While this is essentially a closed beta, a more polished release for the public is expected in summer. As expected, the interface design has been adjusted for use with devices such as a tablet PC, implemented using the Metro style that appears to be taking over all Microsoft systems.

Office 15 retains the ribbon style toolbars from the previous version, but it is minimized by default to maximize available workspace. The overall interface layout has been modified to make it leaner and slicker, with strong consideration for tablets. Microsoft has also taken the trouble to integrate its relevant online services into the office suite. Office 15 can connect to SkyDrive, Windows Live Hotmail, and Windows Live Messenger and a new service called My Office, all of which are apparently integrated under Windows Live login. In addition, Office 15 can connect to third-party services such as Flickr and LinkedIn.

Video:Windows 8 Consumer Preview: Product Demo(0)

Jensen Harris from Windows User Experience gives a demo of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.

Windows 8 occupies a unique place in the realm of operating systems: It’s the first major attempt at system software that’s equally comfortable in mobile devices and desktop computers boasting keyboard and mouse. While the operating system doesn’t ignore desktop input, most of its innovation centers on use on a multitouch tablets.

With the Consumer Preview release, Microsoft has beefed up both touch input, with new gestures like swiping in and out from the left edge of the screen to see a thumbnail stack of all running apps. Also new is the ability to swipe an app window down to the bottom of the screen to close it.

In fact, Windows 8 on a tablet makes far more use of the swiping gesture than the leading tablet operating system, Apple’s iOS 5 on the iPad, does. On Microsoft’s nascent system, you can even use gestures to unlock your Start screen, whereas on the iPad, you have to enter text.
