It should have the basic Word program on it as its part of the windows installation.

If its the MS Office Word 2007 you're after theres always good student deals for the office packages, try here as well ]http//ww…JCQ

Is that why its heavily discounted, because its a time limited license?

Excellent. Thanks for that.

Does Bill Gates know that they are giving the licenses away at these prices? lol....:)

128plant. I happened to be reading this and have a spare sealed copy of Word available - let me know if you want it - PM me your address and I'll pop it in the post.

This offer applies to 128plant only - just asking for the cost of the stamp and a small beer for my troubles.

I cannot quote this hard enough!

Do not buy Microsoft Word! You can get all the same functionality from a free piece of software that has been developed over a number of years by hundreds of professional programmers.

Please give Open Office a go. It's absolutely brilliant and 100% compatible will all Microsoft Word documents.

wooooah...how did i become a flame thrower?? And i've reached 500 posts....i think i'm addicted :-D

I'd agree with Dan by the way - open office is very good but MS products are like crack for some people....

Yep, use free software....I've havent paid for large software packages for years.....never have done, never will. :whistling:
