For starters, Office 2013 saves your work to SkyDrive cloud storage by default. The new desktop suite also ties in deeply with the browser-based Office Web Apps. These are notable steps in a cloud-based direction, but given the overwhelming adoption of Google Drive in the workplace—it's the platform of choice at PCWorld—it's a bit curious that Microsoft updated its desktop suite at all. Indeed, isn't shuttling Word documents over file servers and email a bit passé? The bottom line is that Microsoft knows its customers still need (or at least want) traditional, "hit-a-button-and-install-this-to-my-programs-folder" software.
