I prefer office 2003 by far.

New office software is just stupidly processor intensive. I'm not a fan of it :(

Buy 2007 at cheaper price and you have license to run older version if you want.

It's a good deal for 'home', however students, having .ac.uk email address should wait for MS Ultimatesteal (very soon) where MS Office 2007 Ultimate will be available for less than £40

Wow, thankyou for that. I thought this was only going to be for US.

Cheers

Alternatively, send the message to Microsoft that their proprietary software and file formats are not required and use an open alternative to Office such as OpenOffice.

Its free and supports Microsoft file formats.

I have been using it daily for over 4 years and have not looked back.

Obligatory link to openoffice, the office suite that does 95% of what MS Office does (and 99.9% or what the average person uses) but is free to download.

...can you PLEASE stop spamming this thread about OO? EVERY Ms Office thread gets spammed like this and some people already KNOW about OO but realise it is not as good!

Hint - it's £69.99 at PC World atm (when bought on it's own), so you could Price match it down to £57.90 and walk away with it the same day, but it's going back up to £99.99 on Tuesday so you could pricematch it down to £54.90

I'm going to buy from http://www.software4students.co.uk or the other Microsoft education reseller shown on the Ultimate Steal page. You don't need an ac.uk address.

These resellers are for parents etc to buy cheaply for their children/grandchildren etc. and you don't have to provide any proof, but "Users are allowed to purchase ONE version of this Office product for each eligible student" and for home use only.

Lots of software eg MS Professional Plus 2007 (install on up to 2 machines): £45.99

Cheapest I've found so far but feel free to prove me wrong!
#10
OO is okay, but it's no Office 2007, although I'm stuck with Office 2000 at work so OpenOffice can sometimes be a blessing.

You get what you pay for.
#11
Open Office 3 (Currently Beta 2) will be released shortly and will support OOXML better than Microsoft's own implementation (If ISO standards are anything to go by).

By all means ignore me if you know better.

Well excuse me for posting a similar product that costs you 100% less. I thought that was the point of a bargain site like this. :whistling:

It's not like I'm saying "OMG MS Office is a rip off! Anyone who buys it is stupid!", ala what you get in Mac threads. I'm just politely reminding people of a cheaper alternative that is frankly just as good for average users.

Although I agree that OO is not proper alternate I still back your post and you did a good thing by posting a free alternative.
#14
I've been using Open Office for about a year now, and although not quite as good as Microsoft Office, it's perfectly acceptable for those watching their pennies. Definitely worth trying, as it is completely free.

I think it's fine to post information about Open Office here for reasons above - this site is about saving money and getting good deals. The Microsoft Office is a great deal if you particularly want it, but it's worth considering free options. Apparently you can also get Sun Office for free from Google, but I've not tried that.

Yup, Star Office.
http://pack.google.com/intl/en/pack_installer.html?hl=en&gl=us

It's basically open office plus a few other things like better spell checker, clipart and the like. Normally this costs money but it available for free from Google, which actually makes it an even better deal than open office. :thumbsup:

And yes, the new Lotus Symphony is based on open office too, though I've yet to read a positive review for it. Most people say stick with open office. :thumbsup:
#19
ask me and ill tell you what ripoffs microsoft products are. dont get me wrong, im not against this offer.
but you get used to their software and your only choise is to buy it.
#20
As johnnywashngo points out, it's an even greater issue - the default file formats in MS Office are proprietary so you are always at the mercy of Microsoft if you want to be able to read documents you wrote yourself in the future. Just think about it for a moment to see how worrying that is. The whole system is designed around keeping you shackled to Microsoft for ever.

If you don't mind an old version. For that matter you can buy MS Works for a few quid, which will do enough for most people. :p

Hot deal, and besides, I owe MS for the pirate copies of my youth... :whistling:

Ordered, but from Laskys, rep to Agharta.

That's not strictly true anymore. The new Office 2007 format is supposed to be open so any software can use it, though its debatable if it really is or not. What is truly open though is the ODF format that open office and google docs use, and MS announced that Office 2007 is going to support ODF natively from the next update onwards. I believe you can also download a plugin for older versions of Office to support this also.

So as long as you save your Office documents as ODF you can use any software to view and edit them. :thumbsup:

Not sure if that works. Home and Student is a new licence that came in with Office 2007. Prior to that it was Student and Teachers.

If you wanted a licence for home use but had no connection to anyone in full time education, you had no choice but to buy retail. Besides, the licence number you get with these will probably not work for Office 2003.

Indeed so. Don't be fooled by Microsoft's weaseling on this issue - saying that a file format is nearly open is like saying that you're almost pregnant.

And I don't quite know how Microsoft is going to support ODF because it's very keen to tell everyone that ODF is unable to support all the functionality required by MS Office...
#27
Big thanks to the OP, i've been to PC world and they've priced matched Amazon!

OO Fanboys - yes your version is free but its not what i wanted. Learn to accept that and we'll all be happy ;)
#28
OO "Fanboys" are quite happy to live with MS "Fanboys" - the difference is that a monopolist is ubiquitous, with many people not aware of the alternatives.
#29
In case it makes a difference, don't forget Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 doesn't include Microsoft Outlook - if you want the 2007 version it has to be bought separately.

From their marketing at release I got the impression it would be a lot easier to generate files in the Office 2007 format which in some situations (e.g. generating reports) could be pretty useful. I've not tried to myself so I don't know how true this is but it does appear to just be xml so I guess it's a step in the right direction. They apparently avoided ODF because it couldn't support all the features (who knows if this is true but most people probably don't use these amazing features anyway) and they wanted to ensure people could easily switch between the two formats (with that free compatibility plugin).

Anyway, this is a good deal. I do use open source software as much as possble and OO is OK but it doesn't compare and I'd happily spend the money here.
#31
This seems a good price, although I would try to get the Sun Office free from Google.

Heat added :-) xx

Say no more. :-D

I'm afraid that's the trap they have set - don't fall into it. XML is not open when it is not specified what the tags do (like "SpaceLikeWord95"), and it contains impenetrable "binary blobs". It is all a smokescreen deliberately designed to fool people into believing it's open whilst the company maintains its iron grip on the format.

Besides which, Office does not even implement the ISO "standard" - it's different.
They apparently avoided ODF because it couldn't support all the features
They were invited to participate in the ODF development process - they refused.
and they wanted to ensure people could easily switch between the two formats (with that free compatibility plugin).
If they really wanted that, the plugin would not be a plugin but built into the application. Just like creation of PDFs in OpenOffice is done by pressing one button, but MS makes it difficult because PDF is a file format it does not control so cannot maintain a monopoly by using.

I agree, it is the cheapest way to get MS Office. Well worth highlighting to people.:thumbsup:

This was posted a little while back and caused a fair bit of debate over the fact they aren't asking for any proof of eligibility. It was pointed out that if you don't actually have an "eligible student" for whom you are buying, then strictly speaking you are breaking the terms of the license agreement. However, I leave everyone to let their conscience guide them over that!

I am in the fortunate position that I can get it installed on a home PC through work for a nominal fee. Its another option worth checking before shelling out over the odds.

To be perfectly honest, if you are going down this route without fulfilling all of the stated requirements, then you may as well save even more money and bittorrent this instead. You are just as likely to get away with it.

Is there anything stopping me getting 2 of these for 6 of our work PCs?

We just need Word and Excel (as that's what the user's are used to).

Not physically. It is just that Home and Student means that these are non-commercial licences. The software should not be used for business purposes.

Direct quote from Microsoft "Office Home and Student 2007 is licensed only for noncommercial use by households. It cannot be used in commercial (business) situations."

Why not try openoffice Will? The average user will be fine, maybe not even notice the difference. :)
