The final version of Microsoft’s Office 2013, along with the new Office server editions like SharePoint Server 2013, Exchange Server 2013, Lync Server 2013 are now available to  TechNet and MSDN subscribers, and also Office Home & Student RT 2013  for Microsoft Surface buyers.

Office 2013 for MSDN subscribers can be found here, and Office 2013 for TechNet subscribers.

For Windows RT Surface users, the update can be had by:

  • Head to the Control Panel version of Windows Update, not the Metro-accessible version that you use for more everyday settings changes.
  • Fire up a search for ‘Windows Update,’ and select ‘Install optional updates,’ instead of ‘Windows Update’ from the list of results.
  • If no updates are available, have the device run a check. If there are, then get going right away. The update is titled “Update for Microsoft Office Home & Student 201[3] RT Preview.”
  • Select it, and install.
  • Reboot.
