The retail version of Microsoft Office 2010 is now on sale, online and at stores all over the world. The new Microsoft Office suite comes in different formats and prices range from around £109 for students and £429 for professionals although many retail outlets are offering special discounts to consumers.
The software comes with the usual Word, Excel and PowerPoint programs which is also available in on the Internet for free (MS Office Web Apps) albeit with basic features. Web Apps went live in the UK last week and the ad-supported versions of its popular programs can be accessed from the top menu of your Windows Live account while Facebook users can also connect via this link. Finally, Microsoft says users on the trial or beta version of the Office 20010 suite can still use it until 31 October after which a full version or new trial will have to be installed.
