This month, Microsoft announced their Office 2010 Technology Guarantee, which says that if you purchase and activate Office 2007 between now and the end of September, you’ll get a free upgrade to Office 2010 when it is released.
The good news for students is that same guarantee applies to purchasing Office today via The Ultimate Steal offer for only Â£38.95
Personally, I’ve been happily using the Office 2010 Beta for a few months, so if you’re looking to install Office on your own computer, you may want to give that a try. Performance and stability wise, it feels like a finished product.
