Office for Starving Students


Are you a starving student?  Would you like a copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate for cheaper than MS Employees can pick it up at the Company Store?

I honestly think that Office 2007 is the best product we have released in a long time.  I am a student myself, and Office 2007 makes it incredibly easy to make awesome looking documents.  It also makes Bibliographies and Works Cited a snap... you enter your references into Word, and then just pick the format (MLA, APA, etc) and it will generate your bibliography on the fly.  Need to change format? Just select a different format and you are all set to go.

OneNote is also killer for taking notes and doing research.

I really am trying to stay away from marketing/press release type postings, but this is a killer deal.
