Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has finally finished work on its productivity suite, Office 2010. As you may remember, the fist taste we got of Office 2010 was back in the autumn of 2009 when the first Office 2010 Beta was rolled out to the public. Apparently the Beta version was a big hit – it was downloaded more than 9 million times..

The Beta version is now old news – the final, stable version of Office 2010 is now available to customers all over the world. Just head over to and get your copy.


"The amazing thing about technology is that it’s constantly changing, so people’s expectations for what productivity means is constantly evolving, too,” commented Senior Vice President of the Information Worker Product Management Group at Microsoft, Chris Capossela. “There are new ways of working, and whether that’s new content people want to work with or new styles of collaborating, we’re bringing them to the masses with Office 2010. If the world around us wasn’t changing, then older versions of Office would be just fine The good news for Microsoft and consumers is that there are always new things coming that change the way people think about how they communicate, collaborate and create content."

Remember that back in March Microsoft announced that if you purchase Office 2007 between March 5th and September 30th, you qualify for a free Office 2010 upgrade? Well, if you did that, if you purchased a qualifying Office 2007 product from an authorized reseller, now that Office 2010 is available worldwide, you can upgrade from the 2007 version to the 2010 version.
