5.0 out of 5 stars The Lowdown on the Download, 31 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 (1PC/1User) [Download] (Software Download)
Well after some hassle with Microsoft trying to purchase this in the first place, I was pleasantly surprised that as Windows 8 already had Office on my system that I actually didn't have to download the 1gb programme and it only took seconds to have it up and running. I've only had a quick limited use on excel etc but already like the way just hovering over font/type etc gives you an instant view of what it looks like [last word I used previously was circa 2003, so users of later versions probably already know this. Also like the paste/copy experience etc. This review is only really a heads- up to let people know that if they choose the download version one doesn't have to wait 30mins or so to download. Technical comment can be found on the hard copy version of this product on Amazon for a more detailed understanding of Office 2013 but first impressions are that I'm glad I stuck with this and avoided the open office/Libre versions.

Hi There, I am downloading this software but asking me for extra £19.99 for the English language pack separately. I am finding this a bit difficult to understand. Could you please clarify for me if you have paid any extra. It looks dishonest way of doing business. Josef
