Visio 2013 is released to manufacture (RTM)

Well, it looks like Microsoft Office 2013 has been released to manufacture ( see ). I think that includes Visio 2013 too, even though Visio dropped the Office prefix for the Visio 2010 release.

All I need now is a Surface so that I can draw with my fingers! I must admit that I used to use a Pen and Tablet when I was a CAD user many years ago, but have stuck with a mouse for quite a while now, although I hate drawing or writing freehand with it.

I am pretty sure that my handwriting has got a lot worse because I use a keyboard so much (and probably my spelling too). I used to sketch with chalk or a pencil, but years of pushing a plastic rodent, and clicking its ears have probably reduced my dexterity.

So, I am really looking forward to Visio 2013 on a Windows 8 Surface …

    Remember, the current first version of the Surface is running Windows 8 RT. As such, I think it won’t run Visio 2013, unless you’re using Visio from Office 365 on the Cloud. Also, RT won’t allow connections to a Windows Network Domain, so you’re not going to use the Surface RT to get to your project files on the network. But, there is supposedly a Surface tablet planned with Windows 8 Pro. That one can join networks and Visio 2013, Project, etc.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
