In case you missed it the new Office is already available to volume license customers and later this month it will launch to consumers.
Here are a few things that we love about the new Office...
The new Office delivers your Office applications anywhere, all optimized for the best experience across your devices – from PCs to smartphones to tablets.
And here is some early feedback from customers
thanks for shared
Well I hope the new Windows 8 based Office does not make the mistake of making each document "stand-alone" the way the IE browser and Adobe PDF does. I recently had to copy some data from a PDF doc to a Word file - and the constant switching between screens had me so frustrated that after about 5 minutes I just saved all the files to a memory stick, booted up my Windows 7 machine - did the edits SIDE BY SIDE saved it back to the memory stick and brought the edited docs back to Windows 8 (the machine that had network connectivity)
