The “elusive” Microsoft Office 2010 Starter EditionPosted on June 30th, 2010 at 07:16 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge
Ed Bott of ZDNet blogs about the “elusive” Office Starter Edition 2010, which most people haven’t heard about. Microsoft has allowed OEMs to pre-install Office Starter Edition 2010 on brand new computers that have Windows 7.
This Starter edition of Office 2010 only comes with Excel and Word and comes with the programs basic features. However, the Starter edition does include some ads though the ads aren’t as bad as people may think they are.
Of course, if you want to remove the “ads” in the Starter edition or get advanced features of Excel & Word, you will have to purchase a full version of Microsoft Office 2010.
Fortunately, Office Starter 2010 never expires. You can use it as long as you own your computer.
