Microsoft is on a roll with product announcements this week. So far, we've heard about Windows 10, the huge Surface Hub TV/tablet and the groundbreaking HoloLens. Now, Microsoft is releasing details on one of its biggest properties.
Yep, it's the new version of Microsoft Office, the gold standard of productivity software the world over. Microsoft is making big changes in its other departments, so is Office getting a minor upgrade or a complete overhaul?
It's actually a bit of both. After the fiasco that was Windows 8, it seems Microsoft is done with the "one-size-fits-all" mentality.
To that effect, it's releasing Office in two versions targeted at different audiences. Don't worry, they'll still be compatible with each other and past Office versions, but how you use them will be different.
