Mac OS X It seems like flee-in-Apple's-fur, cracker 'Maxxuss', has succeeded in cracking Mac OS 10.4.4 for Intel. "We were just about to hunker down and wait through the cold winter and a wet spring until we saw some results on the OS X 10.4.4 for Intel hacking efforts, but it looks like we're getting a little Valentines present from 'Maxxuss' who has already broken through Apple's heightened security that is present in their shipping version of the OS. It's just a preliminary release, not all hardware is supported and it requires a bit of futzing around to get it to work, but seeing as we weren't expecting this kind of breakthrough this early, we really can't complain."

"As an example I absolutely had to use Microsoft Office 2003 to do my school work a year ago, there was no way out of it. The school had computers in the library but that was just so they could say students had no excuse for not having their homework done if it required a computer. The computers were always taken up no matter how early you got there, and most of the people on them were either checking e-mail, forums, or porn when the librarians weren't looking so you HAD to have a computer and the required software at home. "

I think you are mixing up things here, MS is not the bully here but your teachers/school for enforcing MS software and/or demanding certain graphs that can only be done in Excel. You should address this with your teachers, not with MS
