Microsoft has launched the community technical preview (CTP) for Office 2012 to a limited audience, with a public beta planned for summer of 2012. With what will likely end up being Office 2013 looming on the horizon, it’s time for those still using Office 2007 to migrate to Office 2010.

At this point, we know very little about what Office 2012 will bring to the table. A post on Microsoft’s Office Exec blog by PJ Hough, CVP of development for Microsoft Office, declares, “At this early point in our development cycle, I’m not able to share too much about Office 2012, but I can tell you Office 2012 is the most ambitious undertaking yet for the Office Division.”

What we do know is that Windows 8 is imminent, and that Windows 8 is built on a new Metro interface, and will run on tablets including those built on ARM processors. My PCWorld peer Jared Newman points out, “Office 2012 is also expected to have some Metro-style enhancements for Windows 8 tablets, but Microsoft hasn’t commented on that, nor has the company said whether Office 2012 will support Windows 8 on ARM devices.” Read more »

Office 2012 will be Windows 8 friendly, but its individual apps will not be designed with the Metro sleekness.

ZoomOn the heels of Microsoft’s announcement that the “Office 2012″ Technical Preview Program had begun, a new report (rumor) has surfaced stemming from “Microsoft insiders” who claim the suite won’t be built for the Metro-style interface using the new WinRT programming model. Instead, it will receive interface tweaks to make it more touch friendly within the Windows 8 environment.

Plans to create a true Metro style Windows 8 version of Office 2012 have reportedly been pushed back. The reason is that the team would need to completely overhaul the suite to take advantage of WinRT. That means an additional amount of time, thus pushing the Office 2012 release back. Instead of a product delay, Microsoft will likely return to the Metro-themed version once the retail product hits the market. Read more »

Windows 8, Office 2012: Get used to Metro, it’ll be everywhere

From Windows to Office, cloud and server applications, and maybe a Metro-inspired dance remix on YouTube, Microsoft’s next-generation user interface will be everywhere by Windows 8’s launch.

Windows Phone-inspired, the Start ’screen’ will replace the traditional Start menu, and will be the front-facing end of the next-generation operating system, Windows 8.

Pinching the user interface from existing Windows Phone 7 devices, in which the thin fonts and the application tiles reign free from the rest of the desktop, evolutionarily speaking it is truly a feat of ingenious for the mobile space.

But can Microsoft pull off the Start screen for desktops, and can Metro be successfully transposed to the desktop? Read more »
