has quite a few good deals going on with software. Several versions of the office suite are available... Honestly though, the freeware Openoffice is just as good, and $100-400 could do a lot of good elsewhere in the financial department.

Anyway, I'm still happy with the MS 0ffice 2003 (S&T Edition), even though it wasn't free. I'm kind of dumb with computers and I like working with what I'm used to. Then I don't have to stress if something goes wrong.

Academic versions are great, I wish I knew more while back at uni, cos I would have bought heaps of O/S, apps etc
It was a great comparison article though, we are looking to upgrade office suite using office2k, but havent rolled out office2k3 for site, but our building only has 6 PCs, so openoffice will work great

I must admit any Office Suite of Applications will suite most users as long as compatibility issues are not a consideration – like say you email spreadsheets all over the place Excel will rule as most that that
Sure each to there own and way(s) of working the draw back is M$ Office is packing VBA and thus the conversation ends with the programmers power this is the by far the daddy of Office Suite – Lotus did code in the back bone was hard and never really took off and so M$ still is bar far the lead runner.
All boils don to what Your going to do and how it knocks on Your working environment – good call!

thank you peeps for the OpenOffice alternative, i need to get off this office xp some-use-before-we-disable-unless-u-have-activation code dilema. :/

Hope you get some good use out of open office. I think it is a great suite. ANd no activation is always a plus.
