Download The Latest Office Suite – Office 14

Folks, I have a “general policy” to avoid “beta” software.. even if it is “kewel” and even if it is free. (Beta, by it’s very definition, means “buggy“.) But Microsoft has become an exception to my “rule” about betas, as their most recent beta releases have proven remarkably stable and usable.

Microsoft’s latest “public beta” offering is a copy of the Professional Edition of Office 2010 (aka “Office 14”), and I have been using it for some time now. I am not a big Office user (I do most things “online”) but it seems to me that Office 2010 is a slightly smoother version of Office 2007 (ie, more “intuitive”).


The beta includes all the programs you would expect, and some bonus features as well. It expires in October of this year. At that time you will have the option to buy a license key, or you can simply uninstall it.

For those of you who would like to try the new Office, (without the cost or the commitment) and maybe meet the much talked about “ribbon” for the first time, click here for the official Microsoft download page.
