Microsoft Office is finally available in the Windows Store

Windows 10 S users currently have the option to use the UWP versions of the Office apps that are in the Windows 10 Store now.

If you bought the new Surface Laptop, you can now grab Office 365 for free from Microsoft's Windows Store. All of which will be available for Surface devices running Windows 10 S.They also say that the release will be today, June 15th. Microsoft also offers web versions of the Office apps, which are powerful and do work with the Surface Laptop, but with the new desktop versions, there's offline access.

The software can only run apps downloaded from Windows' Store, making it Microsoft's answer to Google's Chrombook. If you're not using a Windows 10S device, you won't be able to install Office via the Windows Store until it's out of preview (fortunately, there are plenty of other ways to get Office on those computers).

China launches 1st X-ray telescope
Thursday June 15, China launched its first space x-ray telescope for observing black holes, pulsars and gamma ray bursts . The creative new function pushes the satellite's observation band up to 3 MeV and a very good energy spectrum, Zhang said.

When the preview period will be over, Office will be updated to the release build automatically by the Windows Store.

It has further been mentioned that Outlook, Access and Publisher won't be made available as part of the said releases because the software is not part of the Office 365 Education plan. Users will not be able to add COM add-ins, and OneNote app will be installed instead of the OneNote 2016 desktop version from the Windows Store, as per the company.

However, the operating system restricts what apps users can download, meaning some users may want to stick to a more traditional program.

LeBron James says he never played for a "super team". Really?
NBA fans on Twitter didn't forget and have been rubbing it in after "the king's" fifth NBA Finals loss. But he made one comment during his press conference that left many people scratching their heads.

If the FAQ is to be believed, we should see Office in the Windows Store as early as today. For example, users will only be able to install 32-bit version of the Office apps from Windows Store.

ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley points out that the version of Office available through the store is not identical to the full desktop Office suite.
