That was very much the impression given by Windows 8, a product so keen to promote its touch-screen credentials that it dumped people in the unfamiliar Modern interface and entirely ditched the Start menu.The Windows-using public did not respond with enthusiasm, and when laggard corporates were forced to migrate from Windows XP last year, most shifted to Windows 7 rather than the newer Windows 8/8.1.Microsoft confirmed the naming and timing in a blog post earlier today. We expect to make Office 2016 generally available in the second half of 2015.Office product management team general manager Julia White wrote: We are hard at work on the next release of the Office desktop suite that will be called Office 2016. ) We will have more to share on Office 2016 in the coming months, but this suite will remain the comprehensive Office experience you’re long familiar with, best suited for a PC with keyboard and mouse .
