Raging Against the World

Wow, that’s expensive

the exorbitantly priced software

the exorbitantly priced software

For years I’ve been using Microsoft Office 2003.  Probably since 2003.  But my new laptop came loaded with Office 2007 and like it I do.  Unfortunately it was a trial version and now it’s expired.

So I check out the price for a new version.  And I am staggered to find that the basic version of Office (ie Outlook, Excel and Word) clocks in at a staggering £342.54.

£342!  For the basics!  No wonder people get illegal copies.  Shame on you, Microsoft.
