I think you can get away with posting the link in this case.

The site's a good month or so old, though. I downloaded it a while back, though haven't yet got round to buying it yet.

MSDN-AA (Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance), which I assume you're referring to, offers pretty much everything (though the precise list of products varies between institutions) except Office. My account gives me access to various versions of Windows (from 2000 Pro through to Vista Business and even Server 2003 Enterprise Edition), full versions of Visual Studio 2005, Visio and Access (the only two Office apps), and all kinds of strange apps you've never heard of in between, but no Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.

You're legally required to be a student. They initially check it by simply sending the registration details to your email address that must end in noreply.gif*.ac.uk (or the equivalents in other countries - the UK isn't the only country involved in the scheme, though the site design differs slightly for the others, with some countries getting the shopping trolley and others getting an odd-perspective photo of some dude). The terms and conditions of the offer state that they may at any time request further proof of student status, such as a uni ID card, and if you are unable to produce it they will require you to pay them the full price of Office Ultimate (~£600).

But yes, if you're a (full-time, I think) student, you can get a lifetime licence for Office Ultimate for under £40.

Microsoft obviously figured that they'd prefer to get £40 off of every student for Office, than have every student pirate a copy of Office (from which MS would obviously get £0).

£600 for a few programs? It is a bit expensive...

Very much so. This is why I was using OpenOffice before this. I'll pay £100 for an OS, and £100-200 for a PHP IDE, plus the odd £10-30 for various other apps, but I'm not spending £600 on some Office apps, from which I'll only ever be using Word and Excel (I'd be using Visio, too, but it doesn't actually exist with Office Ultimate).

Microsoft know that people who are not computer literate will see Office Ultimate by Microsoft and see a price tag that high and just assume that its that high it must be good, and buy it, without realising you can get Open Source Programs that do all they need for nothing, not fair really.

but really how often do people go out and by Office, people will mainly just stick with the version of Office that came on their computer untill they get a new computer also bundled with a newer version of Office, they cant make that many sales in my opinion

I imagine that they get most of their money from volume licensing deals with businesses who buy thousands of copies of Office. Same with Windows.

that's what im saying, they cant make that many plain and simple someone buying a copy of Microsoft Office sales, its no wonder they need to target students with it at only £40, but two of my friends have just gone off to Uni and they cant afford to spend £40 on food let alone software pp.gif

Wow pp.gif I was never quite that hard up at uni, though having just lent my brother £600 I may well end up pretty damned broke this year. This is why I'm trying to hold off on buying Office just yet pp.gif
