Download Microsoft Office 2013 Customer Preview (Offline Installers)

Microsoft has released their new Office Suite, Microsoft Office 2013. It was codenamed as Office 15 which will now be called Office 2013. The beta version of Office 2013 is called Customer Preview version. There will be two ways to use the next Office, one through regular purchase of Office 2013 and secondly through a subscription model of Office 365.

Before going further, let’s look at a short introduction video of Office 2013:

Introduction to the new Microsoft Office 2013

According to Microsoft, this new Office suite will be completely cross platform compatible and will work on multiple platforms seamlessly like a desktop computer or a touch enabled device. This is very similar to Windows 8 tablet features.

By default, Office 2013 will save documents in SkyDrive and your SkyDrive cloud account will be accessible across all devices enabling you to edit and see your documents on any device without having to transfer from one device to another.

Microsoft Office 2013 will come in three versions:

  1. Home Premium
  2. Small Business Premium
  3. ProPlus

These versions will be available if you buy Office 2013 but if you want a subscription based access to the Office features, you will need to go for Office 365 which is completely web based and does not require any installation.

Office 2013 system requirements

Office 2013 will not be able to run on Windows XP or Windows Vista. You will need to be running Windows 7 or Windows 8 in order to install and run Office 2013. Other requirements are as follows:

Office 2013 Preview requirements:

  • 1 GHz or faster processor with SSE2 instruction set
  • 1GB or more RAM
  • 3GB of available hard drive space
  • .NET version 3.5, 4.0 or 4.5

Installation and uninstallation of Office 2013

Installation of Office 2013 is very easy. It only requires very basic software installation knowledge. One thing to take care is that Office 2013 can be installed and run beside previous Office suites like Office 2007 and Office 2010. But you will need to specify this during the installation process.

Oh, please do not get me wrong. This new section is not about computers, electronics or any engineering stuff, but rather I am currently constructing a new corpus based on Spectrum, the monthly publication from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers USA, from July 2007 to date. Having been a member for over 20 years since 1992, I am always fascinated by some of the terms scientists use when they talk about or envision their new inventions or methodologies. How many of them eventually come into practice? Could there be some insights we could possibly derive, from the linguistics perspective?
