It's great when a big company like Microsoft throws a bone to its users. You can now grab a copy of Office 2010 (PC Only) for free to use until 10/10 which is just about 11 months away. After that, you're kind of out luck, but this is great way to get Office on your Netbook, or Laptop without an optical drive. To download, you need a Microsoft Live ID (5 minutes set-up if you don't already have one) and a bit of patience. Keep in mind, this is still very much a beta product, so expect some bugs. Happy downloading. HERE

We are curious to hear your thoughts on Office 2010.
