Hi Mitzi,

You can definitely buy and download Office Home and Student 2010 even if you are not a student. It could not however be installed or used on small business computers as its licensed only for non-commercial use.

Only members of your household can use it. It cannot be used by commercial, non profit or revenue-generating companies or business. It is designed by right to be used by small households.

If you will be using Office 2010 for your business or other entities, you may need to purchase other versions of the software.

Yes, that’s true. The Home and Student edition of Microsoft Office 2010 is not recommended for use by businesses, organizations, and alike. I think one of the reasons is to prevent business owners from purchasing and using the less expensive version to help them in their business rather than buying the standard version which is more expensive.

There are many editions of Microsoft Office 2010 and they are listed below:

  • Office Home and Student 2010
  • Office Home and Business 2010
  • Office Standard 2010
  • Office Professional 2010
  • Office Professional Plus 2010
  • Office University 2010

All of these editions of Microsoft Office 2010 support the same operating systems. Microsoft Office 2010 Standard supports Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 with MSXML 6.0, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP Service Pack 3 32-bit, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows 7, and later 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems.
