To me it is worth it. But only cause i do prefer Vista over XP. You wont be able to download Office anywhere. You would ahve to buy it or acquire it another way. But M$ doesnt offer Word or Excel over the net. Unless you use Office Live Online.

Then when you activate, if you entered a COA number that is already in the database, it won't let you activate without calling the number and pleading your case.

If this is true, the OP should buy the cheaper upgrade version, no matter what type of installation.
No that isnt true. You have to isntall XP. There is a work-around for it but that require you to install Vista twice basically so it isnt worth it either way.

Actually, you can pay for and download Office from Windows Marketplace. But that's probably not what the OP was wanting.
