Hi

I am surprised to see that olde version of Microsoft Office available free to download!

Is this a legit version?

I thought people had to pay for it!?

Thanks

Microsoft Office Starter 2010 is Free (Word, Excel, +Ads)

Or use OpenSource LibreOffice which is compatible.

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

Microsoft Office Starter 2010 as above is not trial.

It is free as it has a few adverts.

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
