Should you make the switch to Microsoft Office 2010? If you are not sure yet you could download the latest version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus to evaluate it for 60 days.

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 is the top of the line edition of Office 2010. It is the only edition that contains all Office modules and therefor best suited for testing and evaluation purposes.

The Office 2010 evaluation version comes with restrictions that everyone should be aware of before downloading it.

  • Office 2010 installs only on clean systems meaning no other version of Office can be present on the PC.
  • The evaluation version will deactivate itself in 60 days with no way of making it a full version. This means that it has to be uninstalled before another version of Office 2010 can be installed on the computer.
  • A Windows Live ID is needed to register for the Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 evaluation

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 empowers your people to do their best work from more places – whether they are using a PC, phone or web browser. It can maximize existing investments and help people accomplish more by bringing server capabilities to everyone through familiar and intuitive applications. Office Professional Plus 2010 provides smart, simple, time-saving tools to help everyone do more with less.

    I find OpenOffice is a great alternative. It’s free and works very well with GoogleDocs and Zoho. It’s like my Offline Zoho or Google Docs. Very useful when the Internet is slow or not available. In fact, I find it has several features that ‘online word processors’ don’t (& I’m not even a power user) ;)

    I use the extension OpenOffice.org2GoogleDocs (gdocs_2.2.0.oxt 2.2.0): This extension helps me upload to Google Docs or Zoho in just 2 clicks!

    I also sometimes use Lotus Symphony which I find very helpful.
