Brace yourself, Microsoft Office 2013 is coming, and you know that you cannot wait to make that upgrade if your finances allow you to do so. So far, the box art for Microsoft Office 2013 does seem to have leaked out – obviously before the official announcement happened. It does seem as though what was leaked resembled a clean and professional design, where it somewhat matches the overall feeling of Windows 8 – at least, vaguely. Do bear in mind that the box art remains as a symbolic item, as there is no disc within. Basically, one will have to download Microsoft Office 2013 if you want to enjoy it as soon as it is made available over the Internet, although folks who prefer something physical will just have to wait it out for slightly longer.
Folks who picked the current retail version of Office 2010 from October 19th can receive a free copy of Office 2013 when it starts to ship in the first quarter of next year. Of course, just as a refresher, folks who picked up a new Windows RT-based hardware product on or after October 26th will also be able to enjoy a “preview” version of Office 2013.
