Office 2013 helps coders and designers?

Many people asked why Microsoft waited for so long before launching Office 15. Did the process of development take so long that Microsoft’s engineers failed to provide a developer version or even a beta version in almost two and a half years? This is something hard to believe.

It is rather easy to think about business reasons, like the supposed marketing strategy of launching only one big product every year, so people need to buy the previous versions and then do an update. However, this is not to be discussed in the wide world, as the main problem of the future consumers of Office 2013 is: what will the suite be able to do? How will it be different from the other previous Office suites? And finally, does it worth upgrading?

We should start by saying that, if most of the rumors regarding the office suite may be true, then the problem isn’t if the upgrade worth’s, but how can you do it sooner and faster. This means that Office 15 will come with a series of enhancements which weren’t available in any form under Office 2010 or 2007.

So, what is it going to be? A new application bundled along the lasting Word, Excel, and PowerPoint? Well, it won’t be just one application. Rumors suggests that the release of Office 2013 will come together wind bundled applications for developers like web-designers and coders.

To be more precise, it is thought that Office 2013 might support JavaScript and also HTML5. Microsoft would insert a few applications which will help developers to create applications for the Windows Operating System without using third party applications, but by using Office 2013 suite.

Some might say that even Word 2007 had an option for HTML.

Well, HTML5 means something totally different, as there is no longer the need for flash, and guess who won’t see this to well? If Microsoft bundles an app that can create HTML5 (aka flash-free) web content, how will the usage of Adobe Flash Player perform? We will have to wait and see what is going to happen.

However, rumors haven’t always become true, so we should expect anything from Microsoft when launching the first developer version of Office 15. After all, taking almost 4 years to design and improve a piece of software should provide great results, not to mention that the stake is very high, when competitors like Adobe are worried about the possible result.

So, will Office 2013 be better than Office 2010? There is nothing certain, but rumors tend to answer yes. Might it worth upgrading from Office 2007 or 2010 to Office 2013? As well, based on rumors, it should.
