BC Advisor and all around nice guy Sneakycyber has alerted us to this neat offer from Microsoft.

Registered users of Microsoft's Technet (and, it appears, anyone with a MSN or Hotmail account) can download a free beta copy of Office 2010 by going here.

Thanks for the tip, Chad! :thumbsup:

I have used this program for several months and it works well, with no problems so far. You have to get a key from Microsoft which is good for one year.

Just downloaded this program. So far, it seems to work great. The Microsoft word is what I have mainly used so far, and it's really nice. All the controls are in your face, making it a lot easier to find what you need. I will be tyring out the other prgrams in the coming days. Thanks for the link.

Here are answers to some of the questions I had before downloading. I decided not to try it because of certain requirement.

Please read the following to get an idea of the key things you need to know before you evaluate Office Professional Plus 2010.

1. Use a non-primary PC for evaluation. This Office Professional Plus 2010 evaluation will de-activate in 60 days and it requires the removal of previous versions of Office prior to installation. Thus, we recommend not evaluating this software on a PC that will require an activated copy of Office after the 60 day trial period is over.
2. 60-Day evaluation expiration. This evaluation software will expire in 60 days after which it will deactivate and must be uninstalled before installing a purchased copy.
3. Technical details/updates. Before installing the software please read the Release Notes.
4. Getting started. Learn more about Office Professional Plus 2010 by visiting the Getting Started Resource Center on TechNet. Check back often for more content updates.
5. Keep up with the news. You can keep up with general technical information and news by participating in the Microsoft Office 2010 Forum (on TechNet) and reading the Microsoft Office 2010 Team Blog.
6. Keep your PC updated. Be sure to turn on automatic updates in Windows Update for Office Professional Plus 2010.
