    Office 2007 Home and Student

    Does anyone know if teachers are okay to buy Office 2007 Home and Student? MS's web site says "Office Home and Student 2007 is licensed only for noncommercial use by households. It cannot be used in commercial (business) situations." but that doesn't categorically permit or deny teachers using it on their personally-owned household computers.

    Does anyone know who at MS I could ask about this?

    We're about to start promoting RM's The Basement to the students, but that doesn't cover teachers, meaning we'll need to point staff somewhere else, so we want to be sure we're on the level with whatever we tell them to get.

    Yes, teachers are fine to buy it. The only restriction is that it has to be for non-commercial use.

    The retail license allows installation on three devices. Note that you don't get Outlook though.

    If you want it straight from the horse's mouth,

    http://www.microsoft.com/uk/educatio...t-teacher.mspx

    Parents and registered teachers of students in full- or part-time education are eligible for a Student and Teacher Licence. The licence covers Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 for Students and Teachers.
    Incidentally,

    £38 for Office 2007 Ultimate for students with .ac.uk email address. Bargain!

    Thanks OutToLunch - I couldn't find that page on MS's site, you'd think it would be linked somewhere from either the product pages for the Office version or their page about academic licences wouldn't you!

    Sadly our students don't have .ac.uk addresses

    Can't we find a mysterious someone in a high place that could get us edugeek.ac.uk? I've certainly learned more about IT in EduGeek that I did at the genuine .ac.uk's I went to!! :-)

    It's such a mean system 'Teacher' and student. Not 'School staff' and student!

    Staff at an educational institution qualify if using the software is a large part of their job.

    As far as I'm aware Microsoft only ever ship the latest version. You might be able to track down old stock or a second hand copy.

    @Niklah - no, which could explain why the last post on this thread was over 3 years ago...
