    Define reasonable price.

    You don't think US$239 is reasonable for a Standard version of Office? (Actually, me neither, for personal use, for Professional use I think it is.)

    Unless they have some kind authentication from a Better Business Bureau type organisation or are approved by Microsoft themselves, then you could be taking a chance purchasing "discount" software online. You may not get the genuine article.

    Hi ===

    Often on this board i say BUY software we all know th epirate stuff, but its all poor and been coped and copied and bits deleted and all sorts, not worth it, i beleive it is worth the investment i bout office 95 back then on 43 floppys cost 632 UK pounds or us$1000 or AU$1300 at todays rates sine i have only bought 97 then upgrades,...

    Best to buy in internet UK are amazon and jungle web sites. BUT BUT BUT email Jaun or MrExcel as i saw an advert on this site.... dont tink i was seeing things, they should know.

    Service patch it and keep it all up to date and have fun.

    I work for Software developemnt company OK im finance BUT..... Excel is so good or poor (il get shot but its has it quirks ) that its the best in the world and rules the world so buy the best i know it costs ...

    COMPATABILITY is an issue and bar XP will run on Win95+ but XP demands XP and you have to register with Msoft or it stops working after 30 days ... I use XP but do not have i have 2000 upgrade.... which works on all OP's

    If you have childern Msoft allow REALLTY cheap buy as the idea is children use it and get good at the software, really cheap XP Pro " $us 150 or 97 UK pound in the UK, buy token and sent to distuber of Msoft Jungle do this.

    If you do get student licence as its call. PLEASE
    PLEASE
    PLEASE
    PLEASE

    Help you children to learn all you know and they to can love excel just as much as i and all us posters, i will be so happy at that, i speak from the heart.

    ...... rdgs
