In many ways, Office 2013 reminds me of Windows 8, Microsoft’s upcoming OS that stresses versatility and works decently well whether you use it on a desktop, laptop, or tablet. Microsoft, sensing that Windows 8 won’t be a big hit initially (or at all) with enterprise, has mostly decided to keep the 2013 apps as regular desktop apps instead making them Metro apps. That way, the apps will behave more like previous versions of Office and make for easier multitasking on desktops.
