not likely. when you install it copies files into system folders and also writes to the registry. simply copy the folder isn't enough. you need the installation files
#2
No you need the installer files, you just have the data files that have been installed on to the other pc.
#3
and i thought id outsmarted them

ok thanks
#4

Not when you compare it to the latest version of office!
#7
Have you checked to see if your college offers MSOffice (& other software) free of charge to its students? Many of them do now.

I got the newest office free (my friend's mam works for microsoft) and I'm really glad I didn't paid for it, the options for editing are all over the place, it runs really slowly, I don't even like the look of it. I do however prefer older office to open office, but that might be just what i'm used to. I have just recently installed ubuntu on a dual boot so that will give me a chance to use open office and see what the newest version is like. There is a lot of great free software out there, I think a lot of people are brainwashed into thinking that if they've paid for something it must be better!
#18
office can be better in some cases an open office in others... for exmaple if you have a medium-fast WINDOWS system office 07 will run perfect and it isnt that hard to find the bits you looking for! but if your on a slow system or on a linsux then use openoffice
#19
i'm not running on a slow system it takes noticeably longer to do anything on office07 than in office03, in my opinion its a step backwards

have to agree. Just where have they hidden away all those editing / formatting options. I have to use the help system all the time and even that isnt much help.
#21
what do they call the new menu thing? the ribbon? ill have my file, edit, edit view, back any day. (not really a fan of vista either, so i hope they be supporting xp for a long time yet)

Hey most of the Micro$haft products are bloatware, there are tonnes of alternatives to Office, people just can't be bothered looking. OpenOffice is pretty good and does 99% of what most people need. But hey everyone likes to always follow the leader :-)

I wouldn't have called two or three 'tons'. There's openoffice and derivatives (star office, synergy), there's that one that tesco rebadge and sell, and that's about it isn't it?
#24
there are a lot more individual offerings, ie word alternatives, but i think you right in saying there aren't many suites
