Buying 2nd hand MS Office

  Rodders 21:34 21 Jul 04


I'm trying to find a copy of MS Office 2000 (any version - small business, pro, standard etc). I'm looking on eBay and there's plenty for sale, but I'm worried about whether or not it will install and if it's legal. I wondered if someone could give me some answers about the software?

What is OEM? Should I buy it?

Will an upgrade version install without any previous versions?

What must I get to make sure that the copy I buy is legal?

Many Thanks in advance

As far as I am aware OEM is meant to be issued installed by manufacturer or retailer.

You want a complete copy, a upgrade is no use unless you are obviously upgrading.

A older copy will work just fine not a lot of difference, I am using office 2000 and it meetsa all normal usage.
