Windows 7: Microsoft Offers Free Starter Edition for PC’s or Portable USB Key

Microsoft Offers Free Starter Edition for PC’s or Portable USB Key

Quote:
Lots of great alternatives to Microsoft’s deluxe office suite have emerged over the past few years, but if you find yourself only occasionally in need of a tool to edit Word or Excel files, the hefty $159 price tag for the full home and student edition can be a bit hard to justify. Google Docs or even Microsoft’s own online versions of office can help in a pinch, but nothing quite matches the native experience you get from running the desktop app. If the above scenario describes you, click here to download a copy of Office 2010 Starter Edition for absolutely free.

Microsoft haven't actually come out & said everyone can/should download this for free have they?

Last I read it was supposed to be for new OEM computers only & it's been around on that link since last year, they just keep updating the executable etc.

How do I get Office Starter?

Office Starter is only available as preloaded software on select new PCs.

Obviously people aren't going listen & download it anyway, expecting a full feature suite only to be disappointed, but it's not supposed to replace the full suite & even states that, but it still is handy & definitely a better option than the dismal Works suite they offered.

You won't get into trouble downloading it however, when you download directly from Microsoft. Nor are they really going to enforce it.
