Test Drive Office 2013

As you probably know, Microsoft released Office 2013 Consumer Preview and we decided to do a “test drive” for this new version of Office. It seems that Microsoft has changed the strategy a bit with the new Office suite and now poses a serious competition for Google Apps and Apple iCloud, due to integration in the cloud with SkyDrive. For installation, you need a Windows Live account, so you can join the Office 365 service and install the suite. This … Read more

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: First Impressions

After the official launch of Windows 8 Customer Preview a few days ago, we come with the first impressions about the next version of Windows. Unfortunately we didn’t had a multi-touch capable device, but we thanked ourselves with testing it in a virtual machine. To our surprise, the installation was quite quick. We managed to install Windows 8 in about 15 minutes. Considering that the virtual machine that we used had only 2GB of RAM. The installation process is relatively … Read more
