This isn't spam. This is an official Microsoft program.

Not worth it IMO, at the bottom of that page it says that it is basicaly, a trial, 25 starts free, after that it acts only as a viewer.

No, you download the trial version. Then when you prove you're a student and pay your $59, they give you the authentication code to make it into the full version.

Pretty sweet deal. This is about half the normal price for the Student version of Office, which isn't nearly as good as the Ultimate version.

The only way this would be a spam post is if someone working at MS set up an account here to advertise. A good indicator is a very low post count. You've been around a while, and you just want to inform us of a great deal you found.

Not bad. OpenOffice is at a price you cant beat 0$.

I understand though, its a MS product at a dramatically lower price.
