To be fair, they lowered the price dramatically. Office 2008 Business was $400. Office 2011 Home & Business is $200 for a single license and $280 for a two-pack.Couldnt agree more.
I have 3 Macs in my house. I want the business edition and Im buggered if Im going to buy it twice.
Ill stick with 2008.
You have a single license that lets you install it on 3 Macs in your household. When you upgrade, you'll get a single license for the Family Pack, which also allows 3 installations on Macs in your household. Check the FAQ:Just bought into the mac platform. I bought office with the new imacs mid august. the only reason i bought office is because they had just recently announced their free upgrade policy otherwise i would have just waited until 2011 came out.
The student home version that i got had 3 licenses... it appears that the "free" upgrade will only apply to one license...i can only upgrade one of my computers. Can anyone confirm that?
