Additional Office 15 "Moorea" application images leak

When Microsoft launches Office 15 it will include a new application called "Moorea". While this may be a placeholder name or could represent the final product name, more images of the upcoming application have leaked out.

The images come courtesy of Windows8italia who leaked images yesterday of Office 15. The new images show more of the platform than we saw in the previous leak of "Moorea".

 

The tagline for "Moorea" is "everything you need in one place" which would mean that it is an aggregator of content. Most likely personal content that will allow you to place all of your information related to a topic into one, user defined, interface that allows you to quickly access all of your information about a particular topic. Imagine you are doing research on birds; You could have your documents, images, and videos all in one place.

 

Office 15 is still in early development and each image is most likely subject to change. The platform is expected to be released during 2012 but at this point, nothing has been confirmed.

Is it just me of the fish picture at the lower half of the screenshot was the wallpaper for the iPhone in its early days ?

Why does Microsoft insist on re-inventing the wheel? Azure, Mesh, Skydrive--all just flavors of the same thing. Moorea is just an amped up OneNote, which was touted as a way to consolidate your work.

Because thats what it does and we buy it. Look how many attempts its had with Windows mobile, still a flop and now its gonna use its $42bn overseas cash (can't bring back into the us because of 30% tax) to try and buy a large mobile phone company ..

I don't think this release will support Windows Vista, because by 2012, the market penetration for Vista will be so low, the investment in resources required to support 3 versions of Windows (Vista, 7, 8) would not be worth it. Everybody should be on Windows 7 or stick with Office 2010 for whatever they are using. Also, Vista's support lifecycle ends this year I believe.

I don't think so. I believe Vista Will be supported since Office 2010 still supported XP, and they are pretty much the same in features.

Windows Vista SP2 will probably be supported as well. Due to the fact Microsoft wants to forget Vista, it will probably be the last version that supports Vista. Most modern versions of Office seem to support an OS for 3 or 4 versions then drop it (excluding XP, which was officially supported for Office 2000, XP, 2003, 2007, and 2010-32 bit only).

But at the same time if there are really important features that Office want to take advantage of and the corporate uptake of Windows 7 is higher than Windows Vista (which is highly likely to be the case) they might just skip Windows Vista support entirely.

the business upgrades are very important to msft, and there are still a lot of vista licences. so nope, it will work on any 6.x.xxxx.

I dont think so. Microsoft is a company of habit when it comes to Office and Windows. Office 15 will most likely support Vista, but it will be the last to probably do so. Vista SP2 will be required, as mainstream support ends in 2012 and extended support ends in 2017.
