The good news is that we're now eligible for Microsoft's Home Use Program that lets the employees get Office 2010 Professional for $10 (download) or $22 (DVD). The license is $312 at Newegg, while the regular version is $417.kc77 wrote:We really don't move that fast where I'm at.Yesterday, JustAnEngineer wrote:I've recently upgraded my home systems to Office 2010 64-bit (Home & Student edition). Almost a year ago, the IT trolls said that we'd upgrade to Office 2010 (from 2003) at work before the end of last year, but it still hasn't happened yet.
Our company just did that, I got Office 2010 Professional Plus for 11 bucks cnd and ordered the dvd also for an extra 12 bucks cnd lol. However having said that I find it annoying that any office 2010 app takes about 10 seconds to load, and the workstation is fairly decent, 4GiB of ram, core2 wolfdale 2.9 or 3.1 ghz and a 7200rpm platter drive. Office 2003 (word, excel) loads faster on the old athlon thunderbird 1100 MHZ and XP pro (no lie)
However I suppose I could sell it to someone for a few bucks since its worth 600 retail lol, I didnt even install it, and my DVD won't be in for another 3 weeks.
I have 2 or 3 copies of office 2007 Ultimate ed that I got for 60 bucks through student ultimate steal I still use 2003 the most, love that classic interface, ribbons piss me off for some reason.
