A preview of Microsoft Office 15

Rumors left and right about Microsoft’s Office 15 can now lay to rest as ‘Supersite for Windows’ has published their preview of the latest Office addition. Paul Thurrott, founder and writer of winsupersite.com, displays several images of Microsoft Office 15 installation and shows off the applications new Metro look, saying “even at this early stage, you can see where Microsoft intends for this product to sit, visually, between the new Metro style and the traditional desktop.”

And yes, the Metro style is heavily embedded into the software. Looking closely at the photos posted on Thurrott’s website the only screen recognizable was the selection install screen. From here on out Microsoft Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and Word all appear to have a sleek new look. However, Thurrott says to not worry: “Regardless of which type of system you’ll be using, however, the applications in this suite should look right at home. As to new features in individual applications … Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.”

After installation Thurrot did find the Metro Start screen to be quite cluttered with Live Tiles for each application within Office 15, and no real way to making adjustments. Later he begs the question “Will Microsoft clean this up? I would bet so.” We can only hope — if we’re being forced into going ‘Metro’.

Looking at the installer, the big thing that stands out is a new Microsoft My Site Documents option, which I’ve come to understand will eventually replace SharePoint Workspace. Too, Lync is now part of the install, as I’d expected, and runs automatically at boot if installed.

Installation took only a several minutes and did require a reboot, as with Office 2010. I installed the Office 15 Technical Preview on top of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview running on a multi-touch capable tablet to see what the touch experience and potential Metro integration looked like.
