Today, I decided to finally go ahead and start testing Office 365, especially the new Excel 2013 version! There is currently a free trial available from the Office website here! Here is what I could see:

Then I simply selected the home version (should be more than enough..from what I understand the main difference is the number of users):

Then, I had to select my country (hopefully your own country appears on this list):

And then I could select my free trial:

Unfortunately, as you can see, in order to try it out I need:

-a Windows/Hotmail user (not a big problem)
-credit card information (this is a bit disappointing, I’d love for the free trial to not require this but this is the new model.. no upfront cost, just a monthly fee:

Since Excel 2013 is cloud-based, I did not expect to have an installation to do but it was the case as you can see here:

After about 2 minutes, I got to the first screen:

I got the presentation which was fairly well done, explained some of the benefits of using Excel 2013.. I’d say the main ones are:

-can be clud-based
-comes with SkyDrive (cloud based program similar to Dropbox or Google Drive)
-easier to share spreadsheets with others, edit with multiple users, etc
-free Skype minutes, etc..

I was also impressed by the number of templates when I logged in for the first time:

I will be testing a lot more in the coming weeks and will keep you updated on my thoughts, new functions, etc.

Have any of you given it a try? If so, how do you like it so far?

I too have installed the latest version of Office Suit. After using it for couple of days I am now in love with it.
Apart from the overall look and feel they have also added some nice functions (like: WEBSERVICE) in Excel.
