100% legit. I am a "microsoft developer" meaning I have the abilty to download every product they sell.

Prior to that it was 100% non-legit

Only Microcrap software I have is Office for Mac, and it'* not legit.

My OS X 10.4 isn't legit either.



EDIT - Come to think of it, Neither is my Photoshop.

Absolutely. Even though it'* "Microsoft" and I don't believe they're hurting for bucks, I used to write software and appreciate the effort involved. To the best of my knowledge, everything I own is legit.

Most of mine is legit. Granted I have Office XP on like 10 machines all from the same CD key, but it was still legally purchased.
