Microsoft has announced that it will hold a pre-launch of the Office 2013 suite to all the customers that purchased the Office 2010 or any of its designated derivatives. This offer has been initiated from October 19th and would substantiate until May 31st 2013.
To put it simply the fundamental ploy of the preceding propositions sits as; anyone who buys an Office suite 2010 be it student, home or professional user, he/she would get the 2013 edition of the Office as well, but would only comprise of the derivative that was bought in the first place. So if you buy a student version, a free upgrade of Office Student 2013 would be offered to you.
Microsoft has also announced that all proprietary Office suites of 2013 and Office 365 will commercially be available from sometime around February 2013. While this is not the first time Microsoft has pulled a deal with its Office application. In 2009, a similar situation was contented with the same format of upgrading and after 6 months Office 2010 emerged. As of now the Office student version 2010 is priced at $99.99 while without the free upgrade Office Student 2013 would be offered at $139.99 giving consumers the importance of availing the new available upgrade.
