Is there a catch to downloading free software on astro?
I would like to download Microsoft office onto my new laptop. But I am a little dubious, for the simple reason that it is free - Is there a catch, or is it perfectly safe to download it?

Microsoft office is not free. Any free download for it is illegal and may well contain malware.

✔ Best Answer
What makes you think it's free?

I quote from the Astro download site ( http://microsoft_office.en.download... )

Office is not free...

If you want a free office suite (which, as stated, MS Office is not), then try Libre Office:
