    thats what i am trying to figure out - i know that i can get office:2008 home + student edition for $140 with 3 licenses from academicsuperstore.com but i am not sure if the 3 license thing is standard across all office:mac products or just the home+student edition.

    i think it is just the home+student edition - which is fine as i don't much care for Expression media as we use Bridge for that sort of thing, but buying from academic superstore is just more of a headache.

    It's going to be 1 license. Student/Teacher has 3 because they realize that as a student or teacher you will have a laptop and a desktop and possibly something else (not sure why it's 3) but all other versions are 1 license.

    Home and Student Edition is intended for consumers, and it has three licenses to share within your household.

    Standard Edition and Special Media Edition are more for business usage (which is why they include support for Exchange servers and Automator actions, since those are much less likely to be used by consumers), and so they only have one license.

    Regards,
    Nadyne.
