Excel in business
Microsoft Excel coming soon to a tablet near to you

Microsoft is putting its new operating system Windows 8 on show at an event in Barcelona today. It will then be made publicly available for testing. All very interesting but why should we really care?

Microsoft Vista's woes highlighted the importance of a sensibly thought out operating system and what can go wrong, but Windows 7 seems to work OK so what will Windows 8 bring to the table?

The question in fact should be what does it bring to the tablet? The answer: The office suite.

Excited? You should be!

According to Bill Rigby of Reuters, Windows 8 will work on Intel processors for PCs and laptops and also on ARM processors for tablets and smart phones. A Windows tablet offering business users seamless compatability with their existing office suite presses all the right buttons.

Portable touchscreen Excel spreadsheets, now that's what I'm talking about.
