There are two ways to buy Office 2010 that are actually for sale: You can use your Office 2010 keyboard to either install a stand-alone Office 2010 install on a computer or to update Office Starter Edition to a full Office 2010 release.

This table shows which applications are featured in each edition of Office 2010. How about the Office Web applications? Office 2010 web applications are browser-based editions of Word 2010, Excel 2010, and PowerPoint 2010 and are similar to Google Docs. However, they have the additional advantage that they can handle PowerPoint presentation and OneNotebooks.
Generally, Office Web Apps are add-ons and add-ons to legacy desktop-based Office apps; they are not yet strong enough to substitute conventional Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint. And if you are not familiar with Office Starter Edition because it doesn't have PowerPoint or OneNote features, Office Web Apps can probably close that loop.
When you have serious publication, presentations, or computing needs that go beyond an incidental cover letter, CV, or home budgets, the Office Web Apps will no longer be enough for the Starter Edition. What Office 2010 Edition is right for you? The Microsoft Office 2010 Starter Edition supersedes MS Works, Microsoft's former beginner productivity suit. When you need simple text editing and spreadsheets features without worrying about serious desk top editing or analytics, then Office 2010 Starter is probably good enough.
Office 2010 Home and Student will be used by almost all Office Starter Edition users. Need macro, pivoting table or PowerPoint presentation creation? If so, you need at least Office 2010 Home and Student. Need Microsoft Outlook 2010? You will then spend an additional $80 to $130 on Office 2010 Home and Business.
However, these are rather enterprise-oriented utilities, so most homes and even small business don't have to care about the chimes and whistling of Office 2010 Professional Plus. Stay with Office 2010 Starter Edition until you are sure you need more than it will have. It' free and Microsoft has made upgrading extreme simple - most Office 2010 Starter displays are for full Office 2010 releases, so just click on one to start the upgrading in.
