Install of MS Office 2016 by BizOfTech Answered

Hi.

BizOfTech seems to have great instructions for the free download of MS Office 2016 onto Mach. Has anyone tried it and is it free of malware? How can I find this out?

Thank you.

The link redirects (as of now) to Microsoft's own website, so it's a genuine link and will be free of malware. How to check? When you open the link, see the green padlock in browser's address bar, view it's certificate and verify it's for microsoft.
It's free because it's a preview (beta) version. Typical downsides of such versions are that:
- they typically have more bugs compared to a stable release version.
- they may be (or may not be) time-limited.
- they might collect additional diagnostics data.

If you are fine with these and the T&Cs, you should be good.
