Microsoft Office 2007 for home use - £17.73!

The Home Use Program (HUP) is a benefit of Software Assurance, one of Microsoft®s volume licensing programs. It provides a simple way for employers to enable employees to work at home with the same Microsoft® products they use at work. If you are an employee of a firm participating in the HUP, you can get a licensed copy of Microsoft Office 2007 for home use (currently £17.73!) and other Office desktop applications. Many firms participate. The Metropolitan Police is one large public-sector organisation that is involved there are others.

To purchase software at a nominal fee you complete and submit a web form. You will be sent an authority code to complete the purchase on the Microsoft site.

I applied for Office 2007, it shipped twelve days later, and I received the DVD and product key a few days after that. It installed on my Dell Vista PC with no problems. Microsoft kept me informed on progress of my order with frequent emails. Total cost was 17.31 GBP (to be clear, what I got was Office Enterprise 2007, 76J-00008 Win32 English Direct DVD Home Use Rights).

If your employer uses Microsoft software and you want to find out if you are eligible for the HUP, contact the Benefits Administrator for the Home Use Program at your employer.

and if you haven't already used office 2007, I can vouch for it being far superior to 2003. Although Word's new toolbar system takes a while to get used to, when you do the benefits start paying dividends pretty quickly. I love it and would find it difficult to go back again.

Not saying who I work for...but we've had this for a few years now as well. Hardly what I call a hotdeal, as there are not that many companies it applies to (generally only large customers of Microsoft)...but good I suppose for those that weren't aware of it.

Previously mentioned it here...

This is cheap, although I have the 2007 Ultimate Edition that I definately didn't download for free from utorrent. I definately did not do that...:whistling:

Anyone know if this works with Johnson and Johnson?

Your employer will tell you...you use your work email address.

The Home Use Program is only available to employees of Microsoft® Volume Licensing Software Assurance customers. Only employees who received eligibility notification directly from their employers are authorized to use this site.

NHS staff can get a code from here http://www.microsoft.com/uk/nhs/pages/nhs_licensing_home_user_programme.aspx?xid=ct_hup_01

do they only do office applications or can you get cheap operating systems as well (XP). Is the Home Office covered by this?

Hmm, I strongly differ there. I removed 2007 and went back to 2003. Two reasons:

1. There is a learning curve to the new interface and not enough benefit to justify it. Add file incompatibility (albeit with converters available) and it just seems a waste of time.

2. It would not allow me to import my macros and user-defined functions from an earlier version of Excel. That means that I cannot work at all with 2007, so it's a complete no-no for me. Maybe in a year's time, when they have ironed out some of these bugs.
#18
People might also consider OpenOffice.org which is available for free here. This is a fully featured Office suite, similar to Microsoft Office. It is compatible with Microsoft office files. This price for MS office is very good, but for me, you can't beat free! : )
#19
Good deal but i get this for free as i have a msdn account with the company i work for :thumbsup:
#20
This isn't exactly a hot deal for all is it. Good for you if you work for the civil service (or what was once upon a time a state run company) or maybe even a company that gives a £$%^& about its staff!
#21
Companies pay so their employees can work out of hours.

Yes, Office 2003 is a lot more user friendly, and less hassle.

I'm glad you didn't, like all recent Microsoft software, Office 2007 is constantly phoning home........most of the rogue serial numbers floating around on p2p apps are known to Microsoft and, consequently, the ip addresses of machines using pirated versions are also transmitted.

There's no hiding place any more :thumbsup:

My daughter is at uni, will microsoft 2003 run on her Vista laptop.
#25
I prefer 2003 and can't see the point in upgrading yet.

Same goes for Vista - I am happy with XP Pro at the moment.
#26
i thought i'd mention as noone else has yet that you can also get office 2004 for the mac here as i work for the nhs and got it through them.

It depends on the definition of the hassle. 2007 surely has the better interface, but as with all the new interface u need to learn it a bit. its like saying 98 has more user friendly than win xp but once u get around win XP you realise that its more user friendly than 98.

they have added xml to the office 2007, and so now you can do more things with office. there Access id now far better than 2003 Access. but as with all new technology u always struggle with backward compatibility. it same with open office, they have sxw extension which can only be open with open office

Don't use Excel myself so can't comment, but the learning curve has certainly paid off for me in Word. I'm currently working on a large writing project and the 2007 features save me time daily and make the job much easier than it was last year with 2003. The other thing is, you might as well get with it sooner rather than later - you know you'll be using it eventualy!

Cracking deal, but like others, I'm still quite happy with an earlier version of Office. There's nothing the new version can do that the old one can't, and so few of my contacts have got it (and there's no point in talking to them about convertors; they're never going to be able to download and install them) that I'm better off staying with Office 2000.

A great way to get legal if, perchance, you're running with dodgy software, though.
#31
I've tried the new version and I much prefer office 2003.
#32
I use 2007 an I think it is far superior to 2003.

it will.

I can vouch for the armed forces (well RAF at least). I managed to pick a copy up for around £18. Not got around to installing it yet though.

There is a free A Shampoo Office suite available for download in this weeks computeractive. Its a good alternative to Office, but not as good, for free.

http://www.computeractive.co.uk/asoffice/index

Its a limited offer until 6th Dec, which includes a discounted upgrade to the 2008 version for £34.99

and can you really see MS chasing up an estimated 1,000,000 users (and thats just in the UK!). :giggle::giggle:
#38
Most experienced Office 2003 users will hate Office 2007. However, Its great for people who have had very little or no experience with Office products. I had to uninstall it after 2 days, it wasted so much of my time trying to find where everything is. Microsoft have done a booboo with this one in my opinion, most companies/users will not touch this with a barge pole…and there is no option to switch to a classic interface either. Not only that, but if you have an older system - forget running this, it kills resources.

Why on earth would you give a word processor/spreadsheet app internet access in the first place? even if you did, anyone using a pirate version isn't going to be silly enough to.

Still, I'd rather have openoffice than even a pirated version of msoffice.

agree with GDB2222. The new Ribbon takes up three rows of valuable screen space and cannot be made smaller (2003 takes one row). 2007 also needs a faster processor than 2003 - so does Vista The same applies to IE 7. For now I'll stick with Xp, 2003 and IE 6 (+Firefox), until I can afford a faster computer with a larger screen to make up for the loss of speed and screen space.
