Home Use � Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows

Posted by jenn (My Page) on

I have an opportunity to download a free (to me) personal home-use version of Office 2010 for Windows on my laptop at home. This opportunity is available for anyone with a subscribed system at my workplace to make our home system compatible with our system at work.

I'm retiring next month and am wondering if I should take advantage of this opportunity for our home computer. I never do work at home on my own computer, so compatibility at home really is not an issue.

Are there any reasons why I should NOT upgrade to the Home Use version of Microsoft Office 2010 for Windows? Any reasons why I *should*?

If it's a full version and does not come with any unreasonable restrictions...why not? You never know when it might come in handy.

I agree with azinoh here. This is a valuable gift and who can say what you might get up to once you retire and all that spare time on your hands.

Seriously, this is a nice offer not to be ignored. Remember you can always delete it later but you cannot install what you have refused to accept.
