Hereâ€™s an interesting move by Microsoft: They figure that most college students are smart enough to steal a copy of Office Ultimate 2007 and get away with it, so instead of getting $0 for all of their hard work, the â€˜soft guys decided to let students â€˜stealâ€™ a copy for only $59.95. (The regular price is $679!)
Itâ€™s a digital copy, so they must download to install, but considering thatâ€™s what students would need to do for a â€˜stolenâ€™ copy anyways, youâ€™ve got to assume that downloading isnâ€™t much of a deterrent anymore.
All you need is a .edu email and .5 units.
I wonder how much a unit at the local city college would costâ€¦
