    I have been using the preview for several months.

    Good:
    - Response is snappier for all activities, especially drag/drop
    - Menus more consistent across all components
    - Export to .png, .jpg, .pdf reliable and better quality
    - Color (skin) behind menus makes them easier to identify
    - Modules SMALLER.

    Bad (Preview bugs?)
    - Outlook required rebuilding identity a few times. No data loss.
    - Auto-recovery failed until reboot. No data loss.

    2016 is an excellent update.

    I've been using Office 2016 since the earliest of Beta Builds, love it, currently very stable and I can't wait until the rest of my team starts using it....
