Donations of Office 2013 Are Now Available

The latest version of Microsoft Office 2013 is here! Eligible NGOs, charities, and libraries can now request Office Standard and Professional 2013 editions through the Microsoft Software Donation Programme at TechSoup South Africa Programme.

This means you can start working on a document on your desktop and then continue where you left off on another computer, laptop, or tablet because Office saves your work in the cloud as you go.

Microsoft Catalog Update: Same Products, New Names
