For the past several months a build of Office 15 has been circling the web among various private groups. That build, 15.0.2703.1000, has finally been leaked to the Internet.
The information about the leak started on Twitter when @hb860 transferred the file to @AngelWZR who has posted on his website, mswin.me that the file has been leaked. The leak now appears to be out in the wild and represents an early build of the new Office platform. The leaked build is useable but MSwin.me states that it is somewhat unstable. This build is from the M2 group.
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.
