The most recent version of Microsoft Office for Apple's Mac platform is selling incredibly well, apparently, but the software giant wants to offer even more incentive for people to buy the productivity software suite, so it's giving you a 30-day trial for free.
Users can download the free version directly from Microsoft's website. It's a 600 MB file and will offer access to the basic Office applications with no limitation for 30 days, just like PC users are able to do.
After the trial expires, users will be prompted to upgrade to the full version.
This comes as Microsoft says the Office for Mac software is selling incredibly well. In a blog post, the software's senior director of product management Pat Fox said Office for Mac 2011 has already "gone past" the company's internal expectations.
Right now, the software is only available as a bundled product with Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and Outlook, either in retail stores or directly through Microsoft's online store. It is not available on the newly launched Mac App Store, which is regulated and managed by Apple.
The announcement comes just ahead of the annual Macworld Expo, where Office for Mac is expected to become a talking point.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
