Microsoft Office 2013 Public Beta expected next week? (rumor)

A new report is suggesting that Microsoft has completed the first public beta build of the company’s next generation office productivity suite, Office 2013 (formerly Office 15). On top of that, the report suggests that by next week, the public beta build will be made available.

This rumor comes from a Dutch-based website called bouweenpc.nl, whom we have never heard of before. Details about Office 2013 hit the internet a while back and a Beta Refresh build was given to testers which had nothing new to report feature-wise. The Beta Refresh featured colored window shadows, faster animations, and a newer more refined look and feel to the interface. This Public Beta build is expected to hit during summer of this year, which lines up perfectly with this rumor. Microsoft is expected to release Office 2013 by the end of this year.
