Leakage is Everywhere

Excel 2016

Hi there,


I have heard leakage in pipelines which supply water, gas or oil. 

I have seen leakage in filmy songs or scenes.

I have seen leakage in exam papers.

But, this is a new leakage which I saw for the first time and felt amazed because the information leaked is exactly what is available in original release.


Yes, I am speaking about Office 2016... For more International Business Times and also in Neowin.
