Microsoft Office 2010 Buyers Guide

MS Office 2010 hits sell provisions this month and as common Microsoft is present a intricate choice of Office 2010 Editions to prefer from. Which version of Office 2010 is correct for you, and which Editions are you even suitable to buy? We break it down in this buyers guide.

The Editions

There are seven Microsoft Office 2010 Editions to decide from, while only three of them are available through traditional retail channels. The Editions are listed below in ascending order of complexity and (with the exception of Office 2010 Professional Academic) ascending order of cost.
• Microsoft Office 2010 Starter
• Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student
• Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business
• Microsoft Office 2010 Standard
• Microsoft Office 2010 Professional
• Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Academic
• Microsoft Office 2010 Professional PlusEevery more expensive Edition

includes more applications. The latter six Editions all come with a version of Word or Excel you're probably familiar with, but Starter Edition includes Word Starter and Excel Starter, which have reduced functionality and can't run macros or add-ins. Office 2010 Starter also includes advertisements, which is how Microsoft underwrites the fact that Office 2010 Starter is free.

As you come up the cost ladder, more applications are added to the mix, but none are expelled. In this reverence, Microsoft has kept your Office 2010 buying choice rather simple. Need a particular Office 2010 app? Simply find the cheapest Office 2010 Edition that includes it.

Setting aside Starter Edition, every version of Microsoft Office 2010 includes full versions of Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 and OneNote 2010. Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business adds Outlook 2010 to the roster of applications. Microsoft Office 2010 Standard includes Publisher 2010, Microsoft's full desktop publishing and layout application. Microsoft Office 2010 Professional and Professional Academic are identical except for pricing, and include the Microsoft Access 2010 database application. Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus throws in Microsoft Communicator 2010, InfoPath 2010, and SharePoint Workspace 2010.
