It seems they turned off this video right after the keynote ended, which is annoying as I was watching about 45 minutes behind and all of a sudden it just died and now says unavailable

LOVE the way the text cursor moves smoothly as you type in Word. Feels like you're typing with butter, like your sculpting words rather than typing them!

Hmmm, let's see how good it is, then!

This is cute - but understandable. This initial preview is leveraging the existing Office365 framework. There *will* be locally-hosted/locally-installed versions of Office, though. Doing the install as I watch the webcast (and as I type this) - C2R tech strikes again (which we have seen before , in both Windows and Office). First, it requires *either* Windows 7 or 8. It has NOT prompted me to remove my existing version of Office (2010 x64 Pro Plus); that means you can side-by-side 365 and 2010. It *definitely* looks different (I have Outlook 2013 in the background, along with PowerPoint 2013) except that the TaskTray icons are still based on Outlook 2010 - however, nothing else looks ANYTHING like Outlook 2010. So far, Outlook is looking darn good.

Office 2013 drops support for XP and Vista... From the Verge.

Unsurprising, DM - XP is on its last legs, and Vista has been dismissed as a bomb (though it is, at worst, a comparative bomb, as only XP and 7 have outsold it among all versions of Windows). However, I can safely say that Office 2010 it isn't - it looks NOTHING like Office 2010 (did the install during the webcast) and I still have Outlook 2013 running in the background while the rest of Office365 ProPlus installs. Changes *everywhere* - except the quirkiness of Outlook's TaskTray icons being those from 2010. You can side-by-side it with
your installed Office version (I was NOT prompted to uninstall 2010 x64) and it will import from it.

And Balmer just confirmed a preview release available later today, which is really no big surprise but, at least it'll be out.

And it's quite horrible how Microsoft after years still doesn't manage to get some proper, semi-popular music but instead keeps using this horrible generic music.

It's called licensing issues. The *generic* background music is, in fact, included with Microsoft's presentation products (SharePoint and PowerPoint in particular). Both allow importation of other music formats; hence, if you have music you have the rights to that you'd like to use in your (or your business's) presentation, you certainly can. Microsoft *has* gotten permission to use popular music for specific events - did we forget they used the Rolling Stones for Windows 95 (along with Weezer) and Santana for Windows 2000?

Well then they should get more licences, it absolutely shouldn't be hard for a company with the size and money of Microsoft. Their keynote just started and is probably one of the most dull things I've ever watched. And oh, two people clapped when Ballmer came on stage, two. It seems like nobody really cares.

I wonder if Apple would create a pepper ghost of Steve Jobs like with what happened with Tupac? That would either get wild applause of massive butthurt.
