"Microsoft Office 2010, Visio 2010, and Project 2010 are hitting store shelves today. Office 2010 can be purchased from more than 35,000 retail stores worldwide, including directly from Office.com. The productivity suite hit RTM last month in 14 languages, with 10 currently available to consumers (94 will eventually be supported). Office 2010 is the first release that comes in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, all on one DVD.

Newly purchased PCs from major OEMs now come with the ad-supported Office Starter 2010 or a more full-featured version; in the next year alone, Microsoft expects more than 100 million PCs to ship with Office 2010 preloaded. Consumers can purchase four of the SKUs at retail, or they can upgrade to three of them via a Key Card purchase or download. "
