    Utterly pointless!

    Worst 90 quid ( student license ) I spent was on MS Office for Mac, nowhere near as good as the Windows version, useful features missing ( no duplicate search in Excel! ), anyone would think MS were trying to simply pay lip service to Apple and the EU, and get people back to Windows!

    I'm sticking with the cheaper options like OpenOffice or IWork!

    Why...?

    Why would anyone pay all that money for a Mac to run M$ software? It's like putting diesel in a F1 racing car (Force India). I run hookey Office 2003 in Win2000 on VirtualBox in ubuntu. At it didn't cost me a java bean.

    It's feels better to be a freetard than an iDiot.
