Office 2010 Applications & Editions

The, invitation only, Office 2010 Technical Preview has finally started and Microsoft have released details of which applications are going to be available in which editions of the Office suite.

Office 2010 Applications & Editions

As the information is a little difficult to take in, I thought I’d do a quick summary table.


The main changes are the reduction of the number of editions from eight to five and the fact that the Small Business Edition (which had more applications than Standard Edition) is retired and replaced by the new Home & Business Edition (which has fewer applications than Standard Edition). Another change is that Standard Edition is only going to be available through Volume Licensing.

Some very good news is that all editions will now carry OneNote. Hooray!

Update: Just for clarification, the spot against Web Apps in the table above is the right to run the new Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote web based applications on your own server hardware. Everyone will have access to the Web Apps free through Office Live or through a hosted subscription service.
