    I got the full version of Microsoft Office '97 for the PC :eek:

    Does that mean i qualify for the Mac Upgrade software for the lower price ?? :confused: :confused: :eek:

    Or does the PC microsoft office software need to be newer to qualify for the Mac exchange/upgrade program :eek: :eek:

    The reason why i'm asking is Microsoft Office is the only major software that my mom uses @ home .. I'm trying to go all Mac in the house :D :eek: :D

    i doubt it, however, if your at school or uni you can get it for the special student and teachers price which is about £100.

    Mactopia has a page devoted to upgrade eligibility.

    Even if you did qualify for an upgrade, the least expensive option for you would be the Student/Teacher Edition. There's no difference between that edition and the standard version of Office:Mac.

    I'm not aware of any Microsoft program that will let you upgrade/exchange across platforms.
