At first glance, Office 2013 doesn’t look much different than Office 2010. The layout of the apps is a bit cleaner, and on a tablet, most items are spaced well enough that the app is easily navigated by fingertip. Still, familiar touches remain. For instance, the ribbon of menu options introduced in Microsoft Office 2007 was rumored to be on the way out, but it’s still alive and kicking in Office 2013. And, at least in the preview apps Microsoft supplied us, it’s not hidden by default.
