    I have a Macbook still running Tiger, and have been debating upgrading to Leopard, especially with the great student discount I receive through our campus bookstore.

    I have Microsoft Office 2008 installed on my Macbook, but do not have access to the installation disk as it was provided by an ex-girlfriend's mother.

    So I ask, do I need to reinstall Office (or the installation disk) if I upgrade to Leopard?

    If you upgrade, no. If you do a clean install, yes.

    Technically, you should remove Office 2008 either way if you don't own the license. :)

    ^ I do promise it is a legal copy as you are allowed up to three legal installs with each copy of Office 2008, even if I break up with the owner's daughter. :p

    Thank you for the response, it is just what I was looking for!

    Office 2008 Home and Student Edition gives you three product keys to use within your household.
