Menus? Where? These are the same tabs with simplified ribbons below them that have been in Office since version 2007.

It's Time for Mobile First, Cloud First, Windows Best Commented on: 30 weeks ago (January 2, 2015)

MJF said it not too long ago on her 'All About Microsoft' blog: when MS goes in a new direction, it must seemingly always come at the expense of something else. Yes, getting their services on iOS...

Microsoft Says It Hasn't Forgotten About Windows Phone Fans Commented on: 30 weeks ago (January 2, 2015)

I have to agree: this alignment thing is a bad thing. There will be so much to report on that the result will be that when they release it all at once the focus will go mostly to the PC version of...

Thinking About Microsoft's Brands Commented on: 1 year ago (June 29, 2014)
