That’s right. Microsoft is giving away this product absolutely free for those who wish to participate in the beta. Mind you, just because it’s labeled a “beta” doesn’t make it not high qualify software. I assure you that the primary issues have been fixed already before participation for this beta became available. Want to know more information on how to get it? Then read on:
This Microsoft Office Beta includes the following software bundled in: Access, Communicator, Excel, InfoPath, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, SharePoint, Word, and Workspace
It’s very simple to obtain Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010. What you’ll need to do first, click here to load the beta page. You’ll notice a “Get it Now” button in the top right corner. Click it! Now just sign in with a Windows Live account (or register one first) and follow the steps Easy peezy! You’ll be required to enter some information, which is to be expected.
When the time comes to download it, you’ll have to choose between the 32-bit version and 64-bit version. The 32-bit version will run on both 64-bit and 32-bit Windows perfectly though so if you don’t know which one is right for you then choose the 32-bit version. The requirements for this piece of software–
- Hardware Requirements
- 500 MHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor or higher
- 256 MB of system memory or more
- 3 GB of available disk space
- 1024×768 or higher resolution monitor
- DVD-R/W Drive
- Operating System Requirements
- Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 3 (32-bit)
- Windows Vista with SP1 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows Server 2008 with SP2 (32-bit or 64-bit)
- Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
Something that is relatively important to mention is that this software does expire. It will stop working October 2010. I haven’t used Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 yet, but I’m thinking of grabbing it myself. If I do, then I’ll write a review about it with screen shots so that all the obvious interface changes become apparent. I’m currently using Microsoft Office Professional 2003 so I’m a bit behind. I wasn’t happy by the version after it. Anyway, enjoy your free beta!
Note: Users of Firefox may have issues downloading this program. This is because of Microsoft’s website and the use of Active-X. If you have difficulty, then you should download the beta through Internet Explorer.
