Navigating the ribbon; saving files; all text formatting that I tested.
What does not
Opening files, docx or doc, even with msxml6 installed; Text effects drop-down (Home ribbon tab, Font section) doesn't show previews of effects but still works otherwise; multi-monitor support (it always maximises to the monitor that it started on); connecting to Office.com for templates.
What was not tested
Anything not mentioned above.
I had to restart the computer before doing these tests, otherwise Word would crash after about two minutes of use.
