    There is just to much info here, and frankly, it is very confusing.

    First off, I am running Windows 7 (64bit) and looking to test Office 2010 on my computer. I did some reading and based on that I have downloaded the
    "Microsoft Office 2010 Select Edition RTM Volume x64 DVD English-WZT" listed on the site. Then I read all about the Volume vs the retail...etc... and confusion sets in so I will try to ask a very simple question.

    Which version of Office 2010 should I install so that I can permanently activate it?
    A.) Microsoft Office 2010 Select Edition RTM Volume x64 DVD English-WZT
    B.) Office Professional Plus 2010 (x64) - (English)
    C.) Neither...because they are not yet ready for Prime time!
    D.) Drink some more coffee and continue to read

    I think I can figure out which additional program might be needed to create the activation, I just am having a hard time understanding which one I should start with in the first place.

    Thanks'

    I would use Volume Edition because you can activate via Kms (180days) or by MAK Key (Forever)
    Retail Editions will need a Retail Key, so I would get A. If you want a MAK Key Pm me.

    Take a look at the Office 2010 Repo....
    It very nicely organizes it and makes it easier to do stuff...
    And 1 office 2010 is ready for prime time since its already hit RTM and retail today...
