    I thought it was all office programs but I could be wrong.

    The download I was given was just excel and word but maybe I was sent something else. Doesn't matter because I use Thunderbird for email on my laptops and don't need powerpoint or access.

    Re: Free Microsoft Office 2010 Beta

    Bostine, is it any better than Open Office or just an alternative? I have not used Microsoft Office in several years so Open Office is all that I can use for comparison.

    This is a beta so its free. When the full release comes out it will cost as usual. MS is working on a free web based one, but if you are comfortable with OO, might as well stick with the free for now. I love MS products, I get them for cheap or free through work, so I alway lean that way. It wouldnt hurt for you to take a look if free is there.

    Re: Free Microsoft Office 2010 Beta

    What sucks though is you have to uninstall any prior versions of Office. If I had a machine I could do this with I would so no thanks, I don't want to use a beta version as my every day office suite.

    So is it actually good for a year? I will get it for that. Figure out something else a year from now....

    Isnt true. Im running both side by side. During the install, you dont choose upgrade. Choose custom, then leave previous installations.

    Thanks Bostine! "if you are comfortable with OO, might as well stick with the free for now." is luke warm enough to make me do it. I simply have no problems with Open Office and cannot see trying Microsoft Office again, even if free, unless it is considerably better.

    Interesting, might try that on one of my machines now if that is the case. I swore on the download site it said you had to remove any existing versions.
