sources for buying Microsoft products

  [DELETED] 21:12 24 Sep 2003

Are there companies: besides the high street where I can buy genuine MS software. Does MS sell direct to the general public.
Has anyone had dealing with a software supplier called: Insight Enterprises.

Insight is a main dealer for M$ which also sells to the public. Most main dealers only sell to distributors.

Insight is reliable and reasonably quick.

I have bought a number of microsoft original products of ebay at much reduced prices.

Now I appreciate ebay is fraught with dangers but I only buy from individuals with a 98% plus positive feedback, if there any negative comments I read these as well.

I have been buying on ebay since last year and out of the 30 or 40 items I have bought only one which was not as advertised (bought Harry Potter & Chamber of Secrets but got Philosophers Stone instead).

Just got microsoft works 2003 for £32 and it is the original product.

Excuse I!

Didn't appreciate the meaning of your codicil, Powerless, until I'd posted.

codicil? Powerless' last will and testament modified? Am I going to lose out?

Sorry VoG. Was doing a lot of legal writing yesterday - still had my verbose brain functioning.

Even so, codicil was the correct word to use, it meaning an addition to the main point being made.<;-)

Well i needed a dictionary.

I disagree with my learned friend; -

A Codicil is specific to a will (Mozley & Whiteley's Law Dictionary, Osbournes Concise Law Dictionary, Concise Oxford Dictionary 10th Ed and finaly, see Halsbury's Laws of England at para 251.
