As promised, Microsoft made available Office 2010 Professional Plus for download for all MSDN subscribers yesterday. If you have a subscription, you can grab either the x64 (64-bit) or x86 (32-bit) which are both around the same size (700 megs.)
As I installed my copy last night, I quickly discovered you would need to uninstall the Office 2010 beta if you happen to have it installed. Just something to keep in mind. Over the next few days as I play with the RTM version, I’ll be sure to mention anything new I find VS. the free beta.
For those of you curious about what’s in Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, it’s pretty much the Ultimate version of the previous version of Office. Here’s the breakdown for what’s bundled with it:
- Microsoft Word 2010
- Microsoft Excel 2010
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
- Microsoft Outlook 2010 w/Business Contact Manager
- Microsoft OneNote 2010
- Microsoft InfoPath 2010
- Microsoft Access 2010
- Microsoft Publisher 2010
- Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010 (Previously known as Groove – aka “Ozzy’s baby”)
- Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2 (TBD)
Should be fun playing with each of them!
