Office 15 images leak out [Update] video and more images added

There have been quite a few high profile leaks over the past few days for Microsoft. First a new shot of Windows 8 leaked out, and now Office 15 images have hit the web. This leak comes courtesy of sp3cialis5t on Twitter.

The images show a slightly updated ribbon interface but does not include much of the 'Metro' interface that Microsoft is currently using across some of its products. Although they do appear more flat than the previous version which does align with the Metro styling. It is expected that Microsoft will carry the 'Metro' theme across most of its products including Windows 8.

Microsoft Office has become the staple product for productivity. While others have tried to nudge into Microsoft’s territory, few have been able to make a dent in the marketplace. One of Microsoft’s largest competitors is OpenOffice.org, despite being free, has yet to attract the attention of more than a handful of companies and government organizations. 

Update: Here is a video  of Office 15 and pictures of Excel and PowerPoint have been added:

To all the people commenting on leaked screenshot of windows 8 and Office 15, saying "how is this news","why post this when there is no noticeable change","booooring" and so on;

This is where neowin.net came from, during the Windows Whistler beta time (thats XP to all of those who post things such as the above), this is what Neowin.net did. This is where we all got our latest beta-news update.

So please, SHUT UP and STOP posting if you cannot appreciate stories such as this.

Why the hell don't they fix 2010 before working on a new version

They'll never fix all the issues in 2010. They were probably already planning for this one before 2010 was even released. Microsoft is primarily about turning a profit, quantity over quality. If 2010 has major bugs they may fix them with updates, but they're big thing is going to be the same as it always is, "If you want these brand new features that could be added with a service pack, you will have to go to your local dept. store and pay us another ~$100+ for Office 2015!"

What issues? You can't complain if you don't list em. Otherwise, you're just full of hot air.

LOL what are you talking about?

OpenOffice has way MORE ISSUES, and its gotten worse with a LibreOffice forking out.

Wow - when selecting the text there's a little animation

I like it! Not yet invented by Apple, but it's something along the lines of Apple style.

People talk about 'METRO' like microsoft is using them all over the place and like it was going to translate well for apps like office. we don't really know.

Looks like Powerpoint will finally supports widescreen.

I've been able to make 16:9 slides for a while now... The option to do so in 2010 is in "Page Setup"

Powerpoint 2007 for sure does- under Slide Show, there's an aspect ratio option.

Trying to allude this to be anything Metro is just taking ridiculous a bit too far. It's not like the Zune desktop client isn't a fan of gradients all over it's dialog boxes.

This is simply just a design choice, not someone trying to "Metro" theme anything.
