Microsoft is making the jump to the Raspberry Pi and it’s offering to install the popular office suite on a home PC.
The microsoft team has teamed up with the Pi community to create a new office suite for the Raspberry Pis.
The suite includes the latest version of Microsoft Office on the Raspberry, with support for the popular Office 365 cloud service, which lets users create, edit, and share documents.
Users can sign up for a free trial for the latest edition of the Office 365 home edition from the company’s website, and if the trial is successful, the company will offer a full version for a discounted price.
There’s no word yet on whether the suite will be available to buy in stores, but it’s available to pre-order now.
Microsoft Office 365 is one of the best-known Office apps on the Pi.
You can download the suite on the company website and install it using a simple Raspberry Pi shell.
The software is designed to help you create, collaborate and edit documents.
A Raspberry Pi 2 and Pi 3 are needed for the installation.
You’ll need an SD card for the Windows desktop version, which will require a Windows 10 operating system installed.
If you’re not keen on buying a new PC, you can use a Raspberry-powered computer as a base to build an office environment, with a Raspberry desktop installed as the main server.
The company says that Raspberry Pi is a very secure computing platform.
The Raspberry Pi Zero is a low-power Raspberry Pi computer which is suitable for embedded devices.
