How much will Office 2010 cost?

Heading into the new year, the Microsoft Office team is motivated more than ever by what we’re hearing about customers’ experiences with Office 2010. Many people think Office is just for the workplace, but millions of people are using Office at home, at school and for their small businesses to get things done. For instance:
  • According to the NPD Group, Office Home and Student was the number one selling PC software product -- including games! -- at retail in the U.S. during the week of Black Friday 2009.
  • Office Home and Student was one of’s top 3 Hot Holiday Bestseller software products in 2009.
Meanwhile the Office 2010 beta is generating record interest and use, surpassing the previous Office 2007 beta download rate. In just seven weeks, more than two million people around the world have downloaded and are using the Office 2010 beta. To get a better appreciation for that number, it’s a rate of more than 40,000 downloads per day. That’s approximately twice the number of people who run the Boston Marathon each year, or the entire population of Olympia, WA, or Annapolis, MD, downloading the Office 2010 beta every day!
Most importantly, 9 out of 10 beta users feel that the Office 2010 beta is an improvement over their current productivity suite.

Ubuntu Lunix and Windows 7

A TechNet subscription is nice, but keep in mind it imposes its own set of restrictions on how the software can be used. Probably not something that affects too many people here, but all it takes is a few selfish sociopaths to get caught misusing the program to convince Microsoft to restrict availability or eliminate the program completely. Which would be a shame as the MSDN subscription with the closest equivalent "Software Benefits" package (Visual Studio Professional with MSDN Premium) runs about $2,500 USD.

Windows 7

Will Microsoft have an early adopter sale like they did for windows 7.

I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium in July on Amazon for a significantly discounted price a full 3 months before it officially went on sale. I am hoping the MS does the same thing with Office 2010.
