Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, unveiled the customer preview of the new Microsoft Office on 16th July 2012. The new Microsoft Office has been optimized for the Windows 8 and touch-based devices like tablets.
The new Office has an intuitive design that works beautifully with touch, stylus, mouse or keyboard across new Windows devices, including tablets. The new Office is social and unlocks modern scenarios in reading, note-taking, meetings and communications and will be delivered to subscribers through a cloud service that is always up to date.
Unlike the earlier versions of Office, the new one is tied into a subscription service of Office 365 and depending on the version you pick, you'll be able to download 'apps' like Word, Excel, etc on a limited number of PCs using a single licence.
