Do you hold the one and only truth ?

Yes. You didn't get the memo?

hi,

I have one problem after uninstall Office 2013. One icon without name appeared on my desktop. Does anyone know what is this. I'm trying to remove this but after refresh desktop it appears again.

That it's resource hungry. I tested it on an E-350 notebook and in Powerpoint, movement is delayed on presentations with the usual images and without animations.

It doesn’t look like a GUI made in 2012. That makes me love the quality of 1st and 3rd-party OS X apps even more.

If they do this with our Office:mac, I’m shooting myself.

Yeah the ribbon icons look like 256 colour... feels like a toned down RDP session. The whole washed out thing is annoying too, my laptop display is very bad (low contrast) so I hope this will be improved.

Make sure to send feedback through the apps by clicking on the smiley.

Not me. Where'd you see it? Windows Update, or when you opening something up?

Anyone found the account picture does not update? I've changed mine via Windows 8 since signing in, but for some reason Office is still stuck on the old one...

Is it me or this Outlook 2013 is way too bright?

WTF were they thinking? This interface is an eye vision killer dudes. Is there a way to change this to a more pleasant color? This is insane.

go to settings and change the color scheme to light or dark grey, they look much better

Where are the settings you are talking about? I can't find them!
