Microsoft hopes you buy it. That's why it says to "Try Office 365 for free".



It also says to share the offer on Facebook and get an extra 3 months free; so, potentially a 6 month trial for free.

I will have a try, thank you.

M$ want you to get "hooked" on the product. Too bad, I am perfectly happy with the always free Open Office.

You're a college student and $0.06 a day is worth having skill in a software which is actually g0ing to be used where you get a job.

Open Office is fine if you only want a word processor. If you're able to try this one free, then you can buy Office 2013/Office 365 University for 2 computers for 4 years for only $79.99, and even then you can still use Office 2013, you just won't have full use of the cloud-based set-up. That's $10 a year per computer. Not free, but as close as you can get with a up to the minute piece of Microsoft software. If you're in college, learning on Open Office will give you didley-squat when you get out and find that the folks who spent that 6 cents a day for Office 365 have a huge leg up on you with your obsolete Open Office.

Tip: Some universities offer the latest versions of Microsoft Office, Creative Suite, Windows 8, etc for free. Check your school's IT Department. I know UC Berkeley offers it for free.

Another tip: Many university emails have multiple variations. For example, XXXX@berkeley.edu and XXXX@calmail.berkeley.edu. Same email, but looks different. So you can grab yourself a free trial and perhaps give one to a non-university friend.
