before end of September as I'm currently using trial.

 

MS quoting £75. Is it possible to get anywhere cheaper?

 

Just thought I'd check as I found out the hard way it is possible to get cheaper internet security protection (after I'd paid top price for the year) so in future will check on here before I buy anything!

 

 

Thanks

Or, if you know someone else with the same version of office as you have, the licence is sometimes for more than 1 person. maybe they'll let you use their key?

Thanks.

 

will try Open Office and see how I get on.

 

Don't know anyone with spare key but do know someone I could go halves with if I go that route - hadn't thought of that!

 

Always worth asking the question on here!

Tried Open Office link and it says you have to pay - they want my card details. Its very cheap but would rather try trial version first as I know MS Word inside out so want to see how similar it is before buying.

 

Am I doing something wrong?

Right, don't mess about with that site any more. It's come up as a fraudulent site when I've had a look at it. I don't know how to do a link to the real site and I don't think I'm allowed to put the proper web address on here.

 

Google Open Office and have a look at the one without 'suite' in the web address.

 

Must type faster - beaten to it by someone who does know how to do links :)

Double click the address bar with the link, hold CTRL and press C, then when you're typing press CRTL + V.

 

Links to commercial sites is not allowed... I'm not 100% sure if open office is allowed... CAGBOT will pay me a visit if it's not allowed and I'll know for the future.

I certainly hope it is. Can't think of a more altruistic setup.

Do think people ought to be made aware of the fraudsters who are trying to make money out of it though.

Open Office can be found on many a PC Mag Cover disk. PCPro springs to mind. There is also Lotus Symphony - more modern layout than OO but based on it -free also. If you really need Office and are a registered student, ie college Uni or Open University, then you can get M$ Office for £45.00! Star Office is a commercial version of Open Office, by Sun Corp. There are all based on similar file formats, just the layout is different.

Thanks everyone - been using Open Office and its great! Haven't found where text writer differs from MS Word yet and I know Word well.

 

 

So that saved me £70!

That's what MS quoted me as my trial was running out. I just assumed it included Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access and didn't look at number of licences.

 

I'm happy with Open Office because the Textwriter is similar to the old version of Word - I hate the new one.

 

And so is a 17 year old college student I passed on the download info to - all her college have probably downloaded it by now!
