Just noticed there's an extra £10 off the student pricing for this (normally~£50 from S4S). Might be good for those who missed the RM deal.

Apparently this is a saving of £390.04 on the regular RRP... can't be bad.

Usage: Installation on up to 2 computers - both should be for exclusive use of the licence holder

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Includes:
Microsoft Excel 2010
Microsoft Outlook 2010
Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
Microsoft Word 2010

Two pretty big catches to that deal:

The terms of this program require that you have a valid e-mail address with a participating company.

AND

You need a program code from your employer to be eligible


I imagine the companies have to pay MS quite a bit for this privelidge.
#11
ahh ok.

So as a student, the OP's deal is the best at the moment?...
#12
Bought one few weeks ago. Paid £47.00 for Disk Version. Arrived within 5 working days. good Support too. Heat added.

I bought 2007 Office Plus : Had 2 user licence. ( Comes with Free Office 2010 free upgrade )

The video you linked to uses Powerpoint not open office :|. While Open Office is good for free, and I've used it for a while I definitely wouldn't consider it better than MS Office.

Scott McNealy apparently banned Powerpoint presentations when he took over at Sun, because too many people were spending most of their time either creating or watching pretty Pointpoint presentations, and not spending enough time doing anything that was actually useful. :D

Ah I just assumed he was being serious because there are usually an influx of "Open Office is better and FREE!!!, M$ Suckz!!" people when a MS Office deal is posted.

Open office, google docs, Office online... why pay for this product anymore.
#21
silly question but ... Do you have to be a student to buy from this site?

Because none of those is a viable substitute for MS Office.

Viable for whom?
#25
I bought this a couple of weeks ago. You get licences for two computers, and the the discs turn up in a few days. No trouble with loading. Excellent product. For those without students in the home, you just pick a local school in your area from a drop down list, and name a ficticious child.

Open office is very very poor compared to ms office
theres so many features it lacks
It is great for a free product, but it lacks the capabilities of ms office

Received this from RM not so long ago, for those interested you get 3 discs in plastic wallets and one of them has the CD key on the back of the wallet.

Depends what you want to do, though, doesn't it?

If you just want to write a few letters and put together a spreadsheet or two, OO is perfectly capable and then some.

What exactly is the 'transaction charge'. I thought the hardest thing to do was make up a childs name, not swallow a 'transaction charge'.

The Home Usage Program is one of many benefits of a company having an Enterprise Agreement with Microsoft, not chargable on its own but part of a wider licensing deal. The incentive being employees learn the product in their own time at home, making them more productive at work. Supposedly

Open Office may be very capable and free but it just 'feels' really bad like it was purpose built to be user unfriendly.
#35
Microsoft giving out cheap licenses to students reminds me of a crack dealer giving free hits to local kids to get them hooked.

Its best to stay away from microsoft products, and go towards open source. Once you have spent the time learning it, openoffice is great. Best of all is ubuntu.
#36
All NHS staff used to be able to get the discounted deal (£8.95) as long as they had an nhs email address but i am not sure this is still available as it appears to be under negotiation.

Openoffice is great for a free program, but it completely messed up the formatting of my MS documents and is a nightmare to try and fix. Plus I hate the user interface on it. If you just want to write a plain document then I guess its more than enough, but otherwise I find MS Office easier to use with better "advanced" options.

As to ubuntu - I have no interest in using it whatsoever (not on a main computer anyway).
#39
I find the whole Open Office Vs. Microsoft Office ridiculous, it's like comparing a Bentley to a Ford Focus. Sure they both get you from A to B, but it's the 'luxuries' you pay for and the badge.

If you don't have the money to pay for Microsoft products then don't harp on about free alternatives that I wouldn't even contemplate wasting space on my SSD.
