    eh...this is prolly a no-no but here goes neways:

    I just downloaded Limewire, and found some great apps. I got Office v.X, and found a working sn. My PBG4 is 3 days old, and it came pre-installed with Office Test Drive, which is demo vers. of Office that'll only work for 30 days before it disappears.

    My ? is should I go ahead and uninstall the test version (i just drag it to trash icon right?), or 1) find a crack to change it from test version to full version, or 2) go ahead and install the version I downloaded from Limewire?

    Now, last ? is will Microsoft know it's a downloaded copy? Will I be able to download updates for it? Will a swat team be busting down my doors? Am I bad person now?

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Look, if you can afford a new PB, then you can definitely shell out the cash for Office.

    By the way, it is against forum rules to discuss topics like this. Oh, and the FBI is currently logging your IP, and will most likely arrive within minutes. I suggest you retain a lawyer ASAP. I here Johnny Cochran's got a pretty free schedule these days. :) :D ;)

    just stay away from that Microsoft junk.

    you realise there is free 'office' software out there? i don't mean illegal free, i mean law abiding citizen free.

    OpenOffice
