While we still wait for the public beta of Office 2010 to release, hopefully at PDC09, Microsoft has sent out invites to Office Live Workspace users to try out the new Office Starter 2010 Beta SKU. Currently, a survey has to be filled and the participants will be contacted later if they meet the eligibility requirements.

Here’s what Office Starter 2010 brings:

All you need to do is use Office Starter 2010 Beta at home over the next few months, and let us know what you think. Office Starter 2010 includes Microsoft Word Starter 2010 and Microsoft Excel Starter 2010, which are great for basic tasks like writing letters, editing your resume, or creating a family budget.

And here’s what the survey looks like:

According to Mary Jo Foley, Office Starter 2010 will be available as a preload and will be free but ad-supported. It’ll be a replacement for Microsoft Works trial which OEMs bundle with Windows PCs. No word on how stripped down the functionality will be when compared to Office Web Apps. Stay tuned, we might have a lot more information available at PDC09 starting on the 17th of November.
