This has got to be the best news to pass by me today, saw this headline – fully expected the link to be warez or something nasty but no… a genuine, bona fide Microsoft link. Can’t get any better than that.
The download doesn’t work from Firefox (boo, but are we surprised?) so boot up IE before you start. It may require an uninstall of older versions of Office but it’s relatively quick and simple to install. Infact, filling out the pre-download forms took up more time than anything.
From the quick look I’ve had Word seems relatively similar to the 2007 model (still getting used to it) but there are some cool new apps in there which will be fun to play with.
