Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus is not compatible with Windows XP and Vista; you need Windows 8 or at least Windows 7 to experience Office 2013. Other Hardware requirements aren’t demanding and run smoothly on any device running mentioned operating system.
After installing, you will have to insert the product key given in step 6 to activate trial version.
Unlike MS Office 2013 Preview version, this RTM version won’t work after 60 days (at least I think so). Microsoft has clearly mentioned it as 60 days trial which wasn’t mentioned in Preview. So, Rearm of Office 2013 would be the only option to continue using it even after 60 days.
Else, you will need to buy the product. Though the pricing isn’t officially announced but a leaked document on ZDNet says Professional Plus 2013 will cost 499$.
