  1. Why do this preview when Microsoft is not addressing questions like what the minimum Office requirement be for Windows 10? Are there incentives to try given the inconvenience? Not looking for freebies, just reasonable accommodation

  2. They release new editions of Office so frequently but the most noticeable things since Office 2007 is constantly changed design and moved elements into different places.

    1. I agree with you. Actally, I am still using Office 2007.
      Besides the reason you mentioned, 2007 is the last version with the proper spell checker for Russian.
      More recent version include some notable worse spellchecker.

  3. The link to learn about what’s new in Office 2016 is broken thanks to Microsoft’s stupidity in handling URLs. The link should redirect to however due to regional redirection, it will work correctly only for USA, and will redirect to a broken URL for other countries.
