Microsoft Office 2010 with Windows 8.1

Is Microsoft 2010 compatible with Windows 8.1 and can it be purchased from Microsoft ?
The Microsoft web site seems only to offer Office 365 ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Office 2010 is not for sale by Microsoft so far as I know.

Will it work on Windows 8.1. Yes, it is supported on Windows 8.1 so far as I know.

Can you get it?  Yes. Try Software King (softwareking.com or .ca).

But, why not use Office 2013?  It works great and that is what I use.

Office 2010 is available from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/office/buy/?WT.mc_id=ODC_ENUS_OATProdHome_MonBuy
UPDATE: Sorry, the link redirects you to Office 2013 purchase.

Compatibility is OK. More info: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee624351%28v=office.14%29.aspx

I am also voting for Office 2013. But you have to decide which one to install. If you have some Access 2010 application running on the PC then you cannot use Office 2013 and vice versa...

Office 2010 is also a part of higher (and expensive) levels of MSDN subscriptions.

Thanks both, I will go with Software King as the requirement is to work exclusively with even older Excel and Access spread-sheets and applications. and there's no point in paying more than necessary.
