I saw this trend start to kick up along with Windows 8 coming from the OEMs, it's getting harder to find copies of Office 2010 already.

I wanted to come by and make a warning/comment about the licensing, but after researching it again it looks like Microsoft decided to pull back their stance:

http://www.engadget.com/2013/03/06/microsoft-office-2013-license-transferable/
http://www.infoworld.com/t/office-software/microsoft-reverses-its-office-2013-license-transfer-rule-213975

Basically Microsoft proposed that you would have no transfer rights once 2013 is installed, so if you have to do a full reformat of your system, upgrade systems, or change the system your using (happens in businesses) - you will not be able to reinstall the Office product. I'm happy they decided to go the other direction, that was the only thing really holding me back, time to check out the cool new features of 2013!
