    £40? That's uber uber uber uber cheap. I was expecting a $-£ symbol change (even if this isn't quite as good as a direct exchange rate).

    It seems that I can get Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise for "free:"

    Apparently, a fee I pay to my University each semester pays for it.

    The only difference between Enterprise and Ultimate is that the Accounting Software and Outlook Business Contact Manager, neither of which I would expect any college student to need.

    If anyone to do with that promotion reads this thread -

    Any chance of adding .sch.uk addresses? (Yes 6th formers can get NUS cards so we should really be elegible).

    EDIT: and checking the NUS number to ensure they are voluntary students.

    I read this on Long Zheng's site  this morning and was pleasantly surprised.
    I just e-mailed a university student about this deal because I'm sure there are lots of students who just bought new computers with that free trial of Office installed on them who would rather not have to pay large amount for the full version or bother with pirated versions.

    They even just roughly converted $60 US to the Canadian equivalent and didn't artificially raise the price because it isn't being sold in the US.

    Dutch students have always been able to get Office 2007 Enterprise for the grand sum of €15 at http://www.surfspot.nl. Cool
