Office 15

    Stephen Sinofsky, the head of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live Division, published a video demonstrating the capabilities of the ARM version of Windows 8 and Office 15 (this, however, is the working title), which will replace Office 2010. This will be the company's first office suite with touch control support. Here is an excerpt from the video:



    The new Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote have nothing to do with the Metro interface and are similar to standard Windows applications.

    Instead of the traditional buttons for minimizing and closing the window, an authorization panel with a user avatar is visible, which will be needed for automatic document synchronization (the new Office is based on cloud technologies).

    The official release date of the package on the market is still unknown. Most likely, Office 15 will be on sale along with the new Windows 8 operating system in the fall of 2012.
