Oh well, good luck to him to be honest. He has done well for himself. Still have no idea why they charge £500+ for MS Office, when if they charge £100 they would sell more. But then, that is probably why I am not an entrepreneur!

Why get bill out of a rut at your expense and pay for Microsoft Office when you can get Open Office or Euro Office for FREE. You can open and save files in MS format, will save and open other formats, has a built in PDF export facility and there are plenty of free extensions around.

Open office is good but i do not think it is as good as M$....
I use M$ on my laptop though every new PC i do use open office as i don't want to pay so much for it if i only use it a few times...
