Is this a legit version? I thought people had to pay for it!? Thanks gazmix 12:50 07 Feb 2012 Sorry, here:- http://www.freedownloadsplace.com/Microsoft-Office-Download-16200.htm robin_x 13:12 07 Feb 2012 Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is Free (Word, Excel, +Ads) Or use OpenSource LibreOffice which is compatible. gazmix 16:23 07 Feb 2012 Ok, are the 2 links on robinofloxley's post also trial versions? Also, if i download a trail version, do i have to then buy it after the trial has ended?, like contracted too or something?. Thanks ton 16:33 07 Feb 2012 Microsoft Office Starter 2010 as above is not trial. It is free as it has a few adverts. sunnystaines 17:02 07 Feb 2012 i use Microsoft Office Starter 2010 which is free and unlimited use. only 2 minor drawbacks one is slow to open, two some ads in right hand margin. with a saving of £90 for the student edition I can live with the drawbacks This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
