Forget Office 14, Here Comes 15

Office 14 (Office 2010) is barely out the door. However, scribes are already banging the Office 15 drum. Mary-Jo Foley, who writes Foley on Microsoft for Redmond, is starting to hear rumblings of a new killer feature.

While this secret feature is still not clearly confirmed, one possibility is improving the file collaboration features of Office Web Apps and integrating them more tightly with Office itself.

Some expect Office 15 as late as four years from now. Foley believes we could see it by 2012 or 2013.

By 2013, does a large hard drive-installable Office suite still make sense? Answers welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
