It still sounds bloddy expensive to me and they are only clearing out 
old stock before 2003 Is released
and with all the patches and bugs and attacks its not worth the reduced 
price or even half price

Can you imagine buying a Fridge or TV with that many problems

At least with OpenSource you know that they are continually inproving 
and you can get the latest builds as they fix things and its only the 
cost of the download

Even Star Office the Commercial Version is only about $200 that 1/6 the 
Cost of Office Pro and OpenOffice will do just about everything that MS 
Office Pro will do and some things better
