    We have mounties in Canada. You know, big hats, horses...



    Sorry I can't help you out Leonis! We got our Office X order here at work, but we pay the corp discount, the educational one is much better for Office.



    10 bucks! Man!



    Jonathan: You said you didn't like Office X? What in particular?

    I've heard of this. It's called the "Microsoft Campus." Basically, a campus signs a deal with MS saying they will use all MS products rather than competing ones, and they basically get a site-liscence for everything MS produces. At that point, any student, staff or faculty member can walk into the campus bookstore and pick up any MS software on CD for $5 US, for personal or campus use. However, your personal liscence expires the moment you stop attending/working for that college, so no discounted upgrades once you graduate since you never really 'owned' the product.

    You sign an agreement when you get it that forbids you from distributing it.



    And you can only buy one copy with your Student ID. (And you have to show your Student ID to get a copy)

    This is preposterous.



    if you know a student, have them buy it for you, sign the agreement, blah blah blah.



    This is MICROSOFT we're talking about here. I have absolutely ZERO ethical issues or qualms about screwing these assholes over. ZERO. I only wish more people would do it.



    On a side note, I'd like to plug my site, <a href="http://www.****Microsoft.com,"; target="_blank">www.****Microsoft.com,</a> and invite you to come visit the brand new, just-opened UBB forums at <a href="http://forum.****Microsoft.com."; target="_blank">http://forum.****Microsoft.com.</a>;



    OK, plug-whoring done. Back to your regularly scheduled AI forum.



    [ EDIT: The part that's censored is the "F word" . . . I trust you to know what that is. ]
