Office 15 Screenshots Leaked

While it may be a long way off, there are already leaked screenshots of the next version of Microsoft Office. The normal life-cycle for Office is around 3 years, and Office 2010 (14) has been out less than a year. But we know that when Microsoft releases a product it means they are already hard at work on the next version so it’s not surprise that Office 5 is well into production.
It’s a bit of a surprise that screenshots have leaked out his early, but it provides a nice buzz for the product. From what we can see there isn’t a tremendous difference in the user interface, which is a bit of a head-scratcher since since Microsoft has been moving their products towards the Metro user interface (the interface created for Windows Phone 7).
Pictures, and a full review, of the product have shown up on a Russian website called WinReview (As of 4/5/11 the site has been taken down). The build number of the version reviewed is 15.0.2703.1000. Office 15 is, apparently, built on .NET 4.0.
Check out a few screenshots below. To see more, and read the review (if you don’t speak Russian you will need to translate it) you can visit the previously mentioned website.
