is this company legitimate?

Not going to mark this hot or cold, it's great if you want the real thing but most home users can't go wrong with Openoffice.org which is totally free to download & legal and mirrors so much MS Office functionality, in fact is compatible with all major office software types. I was cynical but since trying it I can't believe what you can get for free.

Office Live is pretty good depends how much you're gonna use it

I bought Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 for £8.95 through the HUP scheme at work :)

Worth checking with your IT / Purchasing dept whether they do a similar scheme.

bought from here before for my Office 2010 - they are great, all it needs is someone in the house to be a student (I used my 11 year old Son who is at school) doubt they ckeck anyway. Prompt delivery of discs and easy imstallation. Recommend? yes!

I bought Window 7 professional upgrade for £35 received cd within 5 days does say only for use for students, but they do not check. Cheap way of getting genuine products for a fraction of the price you would normally pay

agree to a certain extent but the interface is different and there are quite alot of differences......can be confusing for kids

Baccus - Open Office has an Impress programme which is the equivalent of power point. So in the same way you can open a word document with open office write, so you can open a power point with impress. Most open office programmes can be saved in an earlier version of an ms office programme so that you can use elsewhere. So e.g. I save write programmes as word 97 docs if I need to use on a pc with word.
In regards to software 4 students - I have used this many times. It is an excellent site and I have the latest office programme from there for my student daughter who needs the extras that ms office provides. But for me and the odd thing I do, I have no need of the all singing all dancing ms office so have the free open office on my laptop which is adequate for all my needs, and actually in my opinion simpler to use!

It actually costs £39.83 when you include their ridiculous "transaction fee", so the price in the OP needs to be changed.

Yes, this site is totally legit.

Open Office may be a good alternative, but for most people the user friendliness and functionality of MS Office makes it much more attractive. Plus, when it's available at a more reasonable price (such as here), a greater proportion of people are happy to pay for it.
#13
Using files between OO and MS Office occasionally screws up formatting in my experience, especially where picture and shape placement is concerned.

Good company, certainly legit. Ordered my Windows 7 Professional upgrade from them and very pleased with the service, despite the fact the mailed my Office for Mac the first time! They were quick to sort it though.

You do realise that it's not a legitimate product if you don't qualify for the license? Buying a disc for £35 and using it when you don't qualify for the license is actually no better than just torrenting the software - your copy of Windows is no more or less legitimate.

I think this is a good deal - Although, open office is great free program, I still prefer Microsoft Office functionality.

License wise it's no better but much better to get a genuine copy than a torrent any day of the week if you don't mind paying.

I'm considering questioning the legitimacy of this fee. For me it is allowing S4S to advertise a product at £1.95 less than it really is. Imagine the outcry if mainstream suppliers started added £1.95 to your bill for no reason other than to deceive.

Happens all the time I'm afraid. Think of concert 'booking fees'.

Is this a repeated comment from another thread about software4students?
#22
From Microsoft site:

Will Office 2010 products be available in 64-bit versions?

Yes, Office 2010 products are available in 64-bit versions; however, for the best productivity and user experience, Microsoft recommends 32-bit Office 2010 for both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Office 64-bit is optimized for advanced data analysis scenarios that most users don’t require, and existing 32-bit add-ins are not supported on Office 64-bit.

And also note that license for this restricts it to use by the student only ... so you can't buy it on behalf of little Timmy who may need it for his reception show and tell project and expect to (legally) use it for all your family requirements!

I bought the discs rather than the download, when you install it gives you a choice of either 32 or 64 bit with advice on which to choose!

Also you are allowed to install this version of Office 2010 on 2 computers in the same house so I imagine you could install either 32 or 64 bit on either machine, for example you could have a copy on a PC and your laptop.

Even those running x64 versions of Windows are strongly recommended to use the 32-bit edition of Office. The disadvantages of the x64 edition greatly outweight the advantages for all but a very small number of users.

Nope, I actually took advice before I bought the product! It can be installed on 2 Machines in the same premises, it does not have to be one PC and one laptop, I have it on 2 PC's and in any case how would they know one copy did not go on a lappy?

I agree. I have 64bit W7 but installed 32bit office for compatibility with other programmes.

TO EVERYONE SAYING OPEN OFFICE IS GREAT - this is true if all you do is send basic letters out... but the minute you try to send something to a company who use office it invariably f***s up... conversions from office docs to openoffice docs or conversions to pdfs or other etceteras makes it a royal pain... if you can get away with 30 quid for office, you'd be better off... and that's from someone who hates microsoft, apple and anyone else who has a monopoly...

Not true.

Parents, grandparents and guardians: If you are a parent or guardian or have a grandson or granddaughter for whom you would like to license the software, then you can purchase the software. The main requirement to purchase is that the end user licensee must be a student or be a faculty member in one of our listed educational institutions.

Is that why it lets you search for your child's primary school when registering for an account?

Unless you need to deal with very large Access Database/Excel documents, x32 is the way to go.

Bought off these a few times for my children who use this at school on their laptops.
Got the electronic version as Link and COA were in my inbox within 2 hours of ordering.
Very good company to use
#35
Using Office as there seem some compatibility issues with Oo. Also, I am on the 64-bit version - it lacks a few features that would be found in 32-bit. I would recommend the 32-bit (even MS do), unless you really need it.

It is a good deal.
It can be used legitimately by most people.
It does no harm to post at reasonable intervals for people who did not see it before. :)
No harm voting Hot again if you think it's good!

ms office = VBA scripting, open office does not, this was the reason for my purchase (back in 2003) it tried the 2010 version as a beta tester, did not like it and so i still use 2003

This is a genuine MS offer for students. It is also available from RM who sell computers & software to schools. They also charge no transaction fee and it is a whole 3p less! The Basement
