While there are certainly alternatives to Microsoft Office out there on the market today, none have managed to capture the same kind of marketshare that Microsoft Office has.
Although businesses can now buy Office 2013, Microsoft Office 2013 have yet to drop for general availability use at this point and we don’t even know exactly when it will arrive, other than sometime this quarter (though rumors indicate sometime in mid-March).
That isn’t stopping Microsoft from starting to promote its latest version of its popular office suite. Through the Office blog a new online survey is now available.
You might be thinking, “okay, so this is a promotional survey that talks about how Office 2013 could help you, etc”– actually it never specifically even mentions Office 2013 or any current Microsoft product.
Instead the survey is all about asking how much time you might save if you were more organized. It would also ask how much you might pay to have your life more organized. Additional survey questions include how much you spend on services and subscriptions for various things like cable TV, newspapers and more.
The survey promises it won’t link the information directly to you, and won’t contact you about any product or services. Instead, it states, “We promise to return the favor soon by bringing you new features and capabilities in Microsoft Office that will help save you time so you can do more of the things you love to do.”
No clue on how this all relates to Office 2013, but it probably means Microsoft has something up their sleeves. Perhaps the general release version of Office 2013 will include new, undisclosed tools for organization and more?
If so, special customers (like those at the enterprise level) that already have Office 2013 would perhaps get a link to a special download to get these extra features when they launch? Keep in mind that’s totally speculation on my part.
Anyhow, you can check out the survey for yourself if you wish by hitting the source link below.
