Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition Download

Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition is a free version of Office 2010 that is NOT available for download, but is now available pre-loaded on many new computers.

This starter version has advertising down the right hand side, taking up about 20% of the screen space. This would be very inconvenient on small screens, and I have seen many people annoyed by this. However, as it is FREE it shouldn’t be too annoying.

I also think it runs a bit slower than the full version, but again probably designed that way to allow people to experience the program, and then BUY the full, better, version.
