Don't worry, I'll pay for the shipping too! I cannot refuse such a cheap price!

Haha, I would, but we're only allowed to buy one copy of each program. If I do get Office 2003 (and I plan on it soon), I'd be getting it for me. I'm still using Office XP Pro (which I bought for about ten bucks, too ). If you want Office XP Pro though, I'd be willing to sell that after I get Office 2003.

P.S. If you want it that badly, you can always attend Purdue!

I bought XP Pro and Visual Studio like the first day I was here.
And yeah, I guess it's $12, not ten. Close enough.
I can better that...

from when I was a student I have the MSDN Achedemic alliance agreement which states I can use MS software for non commercial use, during the time I'm in university, and can continue to use the software for non commericial purposes afterwards as well...

now, I'm also covered by the microsoft select agreement that says university staff can use (for free) and microsoft software that the university is subscribed to...

Interesting. Well, we have this thing called DACS (Distributed Academic Computing System) in which much of the software installed on Purdue's network computers is available to use free of charge anywhere in the world. I'm not sure if this applies once you leave the university, but I doubt it. In any case, they have most of the relevent programs like Office 2003 and Photoshop CS2 and such.
