Microsoft "Last week I overheard two of the top Microsoft 'watchers' discuss the Office group having bet against Windows 8, presumably because Office 2013 is not fully a (set of) Metro (a.k.a., Windows Store) apps. Ok, as much as it pains me to defend Office I'm going to do so. I'm going to defend them because they are more right than wrong. Especially when you take a shareholder perspective. Not only will I defend what Office did for Windows 8, I'm going to defend some of their licensing decisions. Oh that should be fun." Insightful analysis of the current state of Office within the great context of Microsoft's current challenges. Written by Hal Berenson, former distinguished engineer and general manager at Microsoft.

Educational discounts are not illegal. Period.


Actually there is one scenarios where a Discount can be illegal - when you discount below what you filed with the Federal Government to charge the Federal Government on the GSA Schedule as by law, that is to be the lowest price.

Now, you can do it; but I wouldn't want to be you when getting caught.
