Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 evaluation available

 

Microsoft has sent out word that an evaluation version of Office Professional Plus 2013 is finally available to download through TechNet.

A Microsoft ID as well as compulsory registration to download is required, and both 32 and 64-bit versions in many languages are available. The trial lasts 60 days, after which you'll be given the option to purchase the full version to activate.

Below is a description of the offer from the evaluation site:

Office Professional Plus 2013 is the future of productivity. Office Professional Plus 2013 includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Access, Publisher, and Lync.

  • Productivity with modern, touch-enabled experiences
  • Quickly form business insights with Excel
  • Bring ideas to life with PowerPoint and Word
  • Stay connected to the people you work with using Outlook and Lync
  • Manage Office with real-time performance monitoring and controls

The 64-bit English version weighs in a 769 MB, so expect a similar size for 32-bit and other languages.

Seriously, I can't just download a trial for my work by providing my information? Requiring me to log in with my personal credentials isn't going to happen. Fix this Microsoft!

It's not a bug, so it won't be fixed. If you're paranoid, you are welcome to use something else.

Uninstalling then reinstalling doesn't make you lose you settings which are sync to your Microsoft account.
If you're talking about the non-365 version, settings are not stored online but in the registry. Anyways, if we don't delete the registry keys, settings are kept from one install to the other after uninstalling.

It is a shame that microsoft cancelled their cheap "home and student" offer on office 2007 and 2010. Students could get office for £45 delivered. Now it is £85+.

They announced U.S prices for office 2013 home and student which are about the same so i guess there won't be many students buying office 2013 either.
