    I just got my Win XP AA1 today and am loving it! :D

    I have never been a fan of Macafee so am deleting it to install NOD or AVG.
    I have already installed Firefox browser that I prefer over Explorer.
    Now I use Microsoft Office at work and was wondering if I use the trial version do I get a price break on the purchase of the real thing -- or will it cost the same overly expensive price?


    Wanted to know if I should just install Open Office and call it a wrap.

    Thanks so much.

    Open Office 2.4 is compatible with Microsoft office.

    And best of all, it's free!

    Think it's the best option.

    Student version is cheaper still. Will not have the DB tho. No student ID required to purchase either.

    AAO Office trial

    You have probably already found that Outlook is pared down and not fully functional as a trial. I also am most experienced with the Microsoft suite, but now retired, I don't need all of the functionality it has. I am now using Open Office, and for me it is a dead copy of Office in the modules I use. Even the database is more like Access than Excell. For an e-mail I installed Thunderbird, another free program that works well with Open Office. Easy to set up,but does not have the calendar or appointment reminder features, otherwise flawless with Open Office.
