I know this is a boring issue, but I need to do some minor work on my iMac at home and thus need the MS Office suite. Should I get the old 2008 version or wait for the new 2010? Or are there any other FREE sources that I could use meanwhile?
It might be a while before office 2010 is released so if you need to do work now I suggest you get a cheap student version of 2008. Or you can us openoffice which is a free solution and seems to be very popular around these forums.
Technically, I think that's 3 computers in the same household. The only physical separation acceptable is a student away at school, but still with the same permanent address. Will it work to get it from a friend? Yeah, if that friend hasn't used all the license codes. But, it's not what that friend agreed to, whether he/she knows it or not, when "I accept" was clicked.
