I was just trying out Office 2013, been playing with it for a while. Aside the fact that it seems to be (much) slower than Office 2010 everything seems about okay.
That's weird. Office 2010 is slower than Office 2013 on my machine. Office 2013 is very fast here.
One thing that annoys me slightly is the cursor animation, it makes me feel like I'm a slow typist even though I'm absolutely not.
One huge thing I absolutely hate right now is the inability to choose another color for the user interface
Yep, I looked around for that option too and couldn't find it.
I like Office 2013 a lot, but I do wish there was a little more contrast. That's all I would ask for.
What's really cool, though, is the consistency between Office 2013 and Visual Studio 2012. They now look like they were made by the same company. There are small differences, but they are very similar.

I think I need to give it a chance and use it regularly before I judge the amount of whiteness, and I recommend others do the same.
I agree. I think I like Office 2013 because I have grown used to the style... it's the same style that Visual Studio 2012 uses.

if you have an earlier version of office on your system, you'll have to de-install this beta version. it wouldn't allow me to run my outlook 2007. must be some conflict
You might find some conflicts in some circumstances, but it should work. I have Office 2010 working just fine alongside Office 2013.
