This morning, we reached an important development milestone: the beginning of the "Office 15" Technical Preview Program. Office 15 is the codename for the next generation of the Microsoft Office products and services, and the Technical Preview is the first time we share our work with a select group of customers under non-disclosure agreements. These customers play a key role in our development process by testing early builds and providing feedback, which we incorporate into the final release.
At this early point in our development cycle, I'm not able to share too much about Office 15, but I can tell you Office 15 is the most ambitious undertaking yet for the Office Division. With Office 15, for the first time ever, we will simultaneously update our cloud services, servers, and mobile and PC clients for Office, Office 365, Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and Visio. Quite simply, Office 15 will help people work, collaborate, and communicate smarter and faster than ever before.
While the Technical Preview program is already full, everyone will have the opportunity to try the Office 15 public beta later this summer, and we'll have more to share about the release then. In the meantime, I do want to thank everyone who is participating in the Technical Preview for their contributions and all our customers for their continued support.

Where to dowload?
From an accessibility point of view (Blind and Partially Sighted Consumers) like to be involved when released more publicly available.
Thanks for asking. When the public beta is available in the summer, we would encourage you to try the new release and provide feedback on the accessibility. We've been working with the accessibility community for a long time, and the engineering teams put a lot of work into the accessibility perspective across the Office suite of products and service, and will welcome customer feedback and comments.
Thanks Mike and Bill for inquiring about downloading, and for your interest. The Technical Preview is closed, but you will be able to join a public beta this summer.
Hi xpclient, The nominations for Technical Preview are closed, but you will be able to join the public beta this summer. (Note: Summer of 2012 in the northern hemisphere.)
Glad you like our plans for O365 and Office.
Beta is too late to make any design changes and get the most annoying long standing bugs fixed. Beta is the new RC at Microsoft. Oh well.
I would like an opportunity to participate in this or a later phase of the beta testing.
Now the technical preview program is already full I would like to try the office 15 public beta ! I'm very curious for the big changes in the program.
Hi! Nice to hear about the technical preview program. Is there a chance to participate in this? Should we waite for the first beta?
Any chance of providing a serious update to Mail Merge. Being able to Mail Merge to seperate documents rather than the single file is such an importasnt feature for someone who uses mail merge a lot. Also the abiolity to email merge email attachments with each attachment contiaing different information for each record too is sorely needed. While there are 3rd party offerings native support within word is highly preferrred. Please advise if ther is a better place to put this.
Excited about this development, eagerly looking forward to the preview launch
I'd like to see Microsoft develop a serious alternative to MYOB and Quickbooks accounting products. I'm an accountant and use Office every day but have to deal with poor integration between Office and the accounting packages. There is a huge market for these programs but few actual options.
As a content writer, I am using Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 suite. I am happy with its performance except one criterion. Please, update the spell checker and grammar checker in the Office 15 suite. I am expecting the professional quality grammar checker in Office 15. The grammar checker should be as per as the other grammar checker software like Whitesmoke or Grammarly. Honestly speaking, I am desperate to have it in Office 15 for my career. I am hoping for it in the Office 15 suite.
Have a good day !
