Microsoft has released the final RTM version of Office 2013, Visio 2013 and Project 2013 to the MSDN and TechNet subscribers, together with the product keys to activate the software.
Microsoft originally announced that Office 2013 would be released to IT professionals and developers will be able to download the final version via their TechNet or MSDN subscriptions by mid-November, but it seems that the goodies arrive earlier than expected.
MSDN and TechNet subscribers can now log onto own accounts and download the DVD ISO image for Office 2013 or setup installers for Visio 2013 and Project 2013, and generate product key to activate the installed software.
Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions are available for download.
