Office 15 images leak out video and more images added

There have been quite a few high profile leaks over the past few days for Microsoft. First a new shot of Windows 8 leaked out, and now Office 15 images have hit the web. This leak comes courtesy of sp3cialis5t on Twitter.

The images show a slightly updated ribbon interface but does not include much of the ‘Metro’ interface that Microsoft is currently using across some of its products. Although they do appear more flat than the previous version which does align with the Metro styling. It is expected that Microsoft will carry the ‘Metro’ theme across most of its products including Windows 8.

Microsoft Office has become the staple product for productivity. While others have tried to nudge into Microsoft’s territory, few have been able to make a dent in the marketplace. One of Microsoft’s largest competitors is OpenOffice.org, despite being free, has yet to attract the attention of more than a handful of companies and government organizations.  Read more »

What started out as a small leak for Office 15 has turned into a full blown review. Office 15 is the next version of the popular Office suite that many businesses and consumers use everyday.

Winreview.ru has gotten its hands on a copy of Office 15 and has taken a long look at what the platform has to offer so far. Despite being an early build, the reviewer states that it is rather impressive; the build number for this leak is 15.0.2703.1000. 

While there is not a drastic difference in appearance, there are small updates that the reviewer points out. Things such as dynamic interfaces, small updates to align more with the Metro stlye, and that it is being built on .NET Framework 4. The reviewer also likes the updates to Outlook and notes that there are new transitions in PowerPoint as well.

Finally the reviewer points out that the product is a good start but is far away from completion. There are still consistency gaps with application transitions and occasional crashes; all which you would expect to find in an early build such as this one.

You can read the entire review here, but it is written in Russian.

While Windows 8 may be getting all of the attention lately with its milestone builds, another blockbuster product for Microsoft has just passed into the milestone 2 marker. Microsoft Office 2012 (the 15th version) is now up to build number 15.0.2621.1000.

The information comes courtesy of Winreview.ru and besides the build number, little else is known at this time. According to the source, roughly translated from Russian, “development of Office 15, known as Office 2012, smoothly and quietly proceeded to step M2. First assembly after Milestone 1 was Office 15 (2012) 15.0.2621.1000”.

Microsoft Office has become the staple product for productivity. While others have tried to nudge into Microsoft’s territory, few have been able to make a dent in the marketplace. One of Microsoft’s largest competitors is OpenOffice.org, despite being free, has yet to attract the attention of more than a handful of companies and government organizations.

Office 2010 has been selling at a record pace for Microsoft and has experienced double digit growth in its first full quarter on the market. It’s clear that Office is still the de facto product on the market and you can bet that Microsoft will not let its product go stale anytime soon.

Office 2010 or Office 14 will be shipping in June 2010, however, it looks like Microsoft has already began planning on the next version of Microsoft Office called Office 15.

A post on the Microsoft Access blog, has the title Office 15 and SQL Server. The blog post focuses on the new changes that will be included in the next version of Office.

Hello everyone! As Office 2010 nears shipping, we are starting to plan Office 15.  One area that we are considering improving is our SQL Server support.

However, this is not a new thing @Microsoft. Microsoft has been known to plan future products ahead of its time, rather than wait and watch the current reactions.

Most of the times, Microsoft tries to incorporate feedback received from beta testing into completely new products, rather than adding new features to current one. Read more »

I just posted the Windows 8 release date that was posted on Chris Green’s MSDN blog. Not on that, he also posted the Office 2012 release date. Office 2012 is also known as Office 15.

Microsoft Office 2012 RTM is set to release exactly an year after Windows 8 RTM. How true is this news? Only time will tell. You never know when Microsoft might change its mind when to release a product.

Microsoft Office 2012 RTM Release Date

RTM: Monday, July 2, 2012.
Mainstream Support: Monday, July 2, 2012 – Friday, June 30, 2017
Extended Support: Monday, July 3, 2017 – Tuesday, July 5, 2022

Office 2010 is yet to release somewhere in March or in July and Office 2012 is already in news to release a couple of years later.

Windows 8, Office 2012 Getting Metro UI?

Microsoft’s “Aero Lite” interface for Windows 8 will supposedly feature elements from its Metro UI used in Media Center, WP7.

ZoomBack in December, a rumor surfaced in regards to Windows 8 and the existence of two separate interfaces. These will reportedly coexist in the same way Basic and Aero currently reside in Windows 7.

For Windows 8, one interface codenamed “Wind” will be fully 3D, requiring around 170 MB of dedicated video memory. It will also be “fully dynamic” by adapting to the user’s habits. This includes the ability to speed up daily tasks by changing shortcuts and icons to fit within different usage scenarios. “Wind” will reside in all copies of Windows 8, but remain inactive within the 32-bit environment.

The last two days have now brought information and images regarding the second (Mosh?) interface which will ultimately replace the current Windows 7 Basic. Dubbed as “Aero Lite,” the new UI will supposedly borrow various flat transportation-like arrows and fonts offered in Microsoft’s Metro UI, the same style set used in Microsoft’s Media Center, Windows Phone 7 and the newly revised Microsoft Store. And like Windows 7 Basic, this simplified UI will be geared for low-end machines that can’t run Windows 8′s rumored 3D “Wind” interface. Read more »
