as the OP said "It states exclusively for NHS Staff, but i am sure if you are not one, you will know one. For this price it is worth befriending a Doctor in A&E"

I'm sure if you really wanted to save £100s you or someone in your family must know someone in the NHS....they are a massive employer....worth the effort perhaps....especially if you want to use legit updatable software

If they are offering Office Professional 2007 then the boxed version of the product is £326 on Amazon (which is a scandal of an overprice if you ask me).

You can buy the boxed version of Office 2007 Home and Student edition for a tad over £50 on amazon. it includes Word, Excel and Powerpoint and can be installed on 3 PCs.

I think you have your versions mixed up

There is no "home and standard" version, it is just called "Standard edition"

The "student" version is called "Home and Student edition"

If you can get it at £8.95 then fair enough, though I've not used Microsoft office in years, OpenOffice to my mind is a much better option and completely free and updatable. I've never had any problems with it and it does everything that Microsoft Office does. Can't understand why people bother paying for something that has a perfectly good free version.
#12
Just a legal warning for those who think anyone can use this software .. as the license is an extension of the NHS Microsoft agreement and you are only licensed to use the software whilst you work for the NHS!! so IF caught with it you could technically get done if your not NHS..

my wife is a nurse so i am official ok then, but if anyone wants to take her off my hands....?

What utter tosh. Office 2007 is a stunning piece of software, Microsoft really raised the bar.

Please can someone help!! I have put in all my details and got as far as the authentication page, it then asks for a reference which is already input automatically and you need to press "next" the problem is that this isnt highlighted so it wont let me move on to the next stage of ordering....am I missing something!!! :whistling:

That's right. If you are not NHS employee you may as well download a cracked version and save a tenner, it will be equally legal.

I think you're entitled to it too but you would need to talk to your employer for the details, I know the MoD and NHS are entitled to it. I can't see why the Fire Brigade and Police aren't too.

I have a DVD of office 2007 through my employee, and this scheme.

As people have said, if you are doing this and you are not a NHS employee it is the same as getting a copy from a car boot for £3.

If I ever leave my company, I have to remove the software as the license is no longer valid.

I see the high and mighty are in how can you compare a legit NHS version with a proper key to a cracked version that may stop working at any time and the updates may not work. If you don't work for the NHS i doubt you will ever have to worry because in all my time as a network admin i don't know one person that has been audited by Microsoft to see if you have software they shouldn't have

The only time you worry is if you have a company and you have multiple workstations connecting to a server that is running windows server and have not got a legit licence or the right amount of CAL for there setup then you may get a visit but to say that you will be done if you have a NHS copy is utter *****. you could say if it ever happened (like flying pigs) is that the person who's NHS number you used uses the PC and they wouldn't pursue it any further because they wouldn't be able to prove otherwise and it would be a waste of time and money to prove it.

What it seems to me is the scare mongers are jealous because they cant get a copy or have paid full price for there copy i think people on here are old enough to make there own minds up and way up the pros and cons of it.

Sorry mate, but if you're not NHS staff yourself your licence will be worth peanuts. So if you're going to get illegal software, what's the point in paying for it? Even dirt cheap...
How can anybody even think for one second that this is any better than an illegal download??? If Microsoft sued you, you would have no more ground for the one that you paid.

Hot if you're NHS (my other half is though so thanks!), but if you're not... either save yourself the trouble, or save yourself the money!

Note - I insist:
I am NOT encouraging anyone to download an illegal version, but rather discouraging anybody thinking they're better off with another illegal licence that "looks" legit because they paid towards it.

What's the difference??? They're both equally illegal.
Ease of use? Peace of mind? If you're into illegal downloads then nothing Microsoft do will ever stop you anyway, there's always a crack or workaround to the new anti-crack. There again, same thing!

The point is: don't buy it for the wrong reasons!!! Paying towards the licence doesn't make it any more legal.

Stunningly awful. I have 2007, but use OpenOffice instead. It is something I can "just use", as opposed to 2007's "where the hell have they hidden the option to do that?"
#28
Can the downloaded version be used on multiple machines? I have the previous version on dvd, and it can easily be loaded on other machines, just wondered how the download works? Also, I would imagine the download would take a couple of hours.

hot deal and the software is really good

Raised the bar?

2007 is awful compared with 2003! Enjoy the 'ribbon' !

However for £8.95 you can't grumble :thumbsup:

Being and IT Pro and having personally gone through Audit with MS, I highly recommend you ignore such comments. Illegal software is illegal software. The current market trend is to seek out non compliance and fine/charge for that.
I agree that the current focus is on Small/Medium companies, but the technologies used will catch you out eventually.
If your the sort of person that likes to break into peoples homes and steal LCD TVs then this is for you! If you have never stolen anything, why start now!!
Unless your a current NHS employee, don't buy this, go get "Home and Student", its can be had for £70 - £100 easily and is 100% for the rest of your life, and is 3 Licenses for the same family, so can work out around £25 per person!
If you don't want to listen to this, then you may as well use a Pirate copy - cos that's what you'll be doing!

I like open office too and think it's word processor is much better. The Open Office spreadsheet is no excel though.

Last time I ordered the 2003 version it would only let me load it onto 2 machines, supposedly one for home desktop machine one for laptop. This was even though I had removed it from the laptop I sold.....I think a phone call would have sorted the problem but in the end ordered 2007.

Indeed. Not all of us think like sheep, and some people haven't heard the good news yet...
#36
To be honest , getting a licience when you dont work for the NHS would still be a alot less likey to be found out than downlaoding a dodgy copy via the internet as the CD Key etc and serial number on that one could be being used by any number of people who have done the same, it would be hard for microsoft to say which were illegal its not as if the NHS would inform them when you left, anyway that choice is yours to make.

I however do work for the NHS so its all good for me ;)
#37
I don't work for the NHS, but I use OpenOffice, so it's all good for me too (in fact much better, because I'll still be able to read my files in 10 years' time, or can use another office suite based on its abilities, unlike if my documents are stored in Microsoft proprietary formats).
#38
Very kind of Microsoft or the NHS to subsidies our poorly paid & seriously underfunded Doctors in this way.
Think the poor blighters are only on a minimum of just over 2K/week - hardly a living wage is it ?

On a seperate note, got an email direct from Microsoft recently with the following offer of a 3 computer licence of Office 2007 for £59.99 (download).

For four weeks only, you can buy Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 for just £59.99. Home and Student includes Word 2007, Excel 2007, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and OneNote 2007 which gives you all the tools you'll need to manage home and homework.

Don't forget… this offer is only available until 20 April so get it now from the Microsoft Store.

Best offer for we mere mortals seems to be the one from Amazon @ £59.97 for a hard copy (or £49.99 if buying anything else at same time costing £39.99 or over).

open office is total garbage. office 2007 is the future, whether or not your brain is able to grasp the updated UI (tip: try learning it instead of whining, it will take 30 mins max and improve your productivity from thereon)
