What’s the difference between “Office Home and Student 2010” and “Office Professional Academic 2010”?

3 words: Outlook, Publisher, Access

Those 3 applications are included with Academic but not Home and Student.

Details here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/suites/

Of course for Academic you must qualify.  Here are the terms from http://www.microsoft.com/student/en/us/office/default.aspx:

You must have a valid e-mail address at an educational institution
ending with the domain suffix .EDU (i.e., leina@contoso.edu)
OR have a valid email address at one of the educational institutions
listed here.
   AND 
You must be a student at a U.S. educational institution
and must be actively enrolled in at least 0.5 course credit
and be able to provide proof of enrollment upon request.

The link just cited is real handy as you can submit your educational email address, instantly get prequalified (with a URL sent to that address), purchase, AND DOWNLOAD the software (in partnership with Digital River)!  Good to go!
