Just a slight back track here. Sometime ago when MS Office 2000 Professional was the latest version I remember buying the Student version for my eldest daughter. We had an empty box with a cut down version in and a form to fill in. This had to be taken to the 6th form for her head teacher to sign and authenticate with a school/college stamp. then sent to Microsoft. 3 weeks after this we recieved the full 2 cd version of Office 2000 for £90 or so.
I agree home edition would be a great idea BUT just what would they hack out of it?
