I use Xp at home and all was well till I started college who use windows 2000 the main prob is power point is used by the college my home PC has works suit 2002 and doesn't have power point. I visited my local PC world to find a version of ofice with power point for £115 is this a rip off or what and PP on its own was over £400.
The student version of Office (in the region of £110 - £120) includes Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook. If you don't want Access (Databases) this will suit your needs. It is far from being a rip-off.
You may want to consider some of the other office suits that are compatible with Office such as Star Office (£60 ish I think), OpenOffice (free download) or Ability Office (free download?)
If you bought your PC from PCW then think they may give you a student discount as well.
My daughter apparently paid £80 for a student copy of Office 2000 under a deal from her student union bookshop at uni. It is the full version less Access. So ask at your uni or college. And anyway £115 for a full copy of office is not bad. Jane
