what college does she go to? some colleges are part of microsofts program to give MS Office (and other microsoft programs) to people who take computer science classes. i.e. one class in computer science can give her all the microsoft software she needs.

OU (Oakland University ) has a similar program but it doesn't include MS office. they only give out "development" software. anything that could help students make something new i guess. I got Vista Business and Visual Basic from them.

OpenOffice is allright...

But you could just pirate MS Office off limewire or whatever... not that I'm endorsing piracy or anything

My school offers software for use to students too. They just lend out the disks for a day, you install 'em and then return the disks the next day.

ok, here is my general limewire warning...

you may get something good off it but you will most likley get a virus as well. limewire has a bad history in my expirence of messing up peoples computers bad.

ok, your choice though.
