To be honest I am using Office 2003 Pro and its not that much different, it looks VERY NICE, a beautiful shade of blue!!! and the buttons are GORGEEEOOOOUUSSSS, but does it do anything better than 2002(XP)? I doubt it from what I have seen so far,,,,,. Its no surprise that Microsoft 'Drops Support' for an increasing number of applications these days, it is probably the only way they can convince people they need to upgrade and I dont know how much longer we ca take this crap from one of the biggest companies in computing...... ... .

why not go for the office 2003 student version £120, its the same as the standard version but considerably cheaper. doesnt matter if you are not a student, just walk in and buy.

oh... I thought you bought an empty box with a form and then filled in a form enclosed to get the CD with proof of eligibility.

Right I'll remember next time - got a 15 year old at school...

I just bought Office 2003 Pro from click here - they had it on offer for students for around £94. I had to photocopy my university ID card and fax it off to them though.

Failing that borrow a kid for the day and get the student edition!
