    Hello all,

    Win 7, Office as said. Everything else you can find free versions for pretty much! Unless you do any design work for work (think that makes sense) in which case ask for a copy of whatever you use for that too!

    Whatever they will give you free and correctly and fully licensed but windows & office for a basic start is good, depending on what you want to use it for - photo editiing, gimp or paint.net, video editing? etc...

    Ubuntu Linux

    You can have 7 as a virtual machine if you're desperate to try it

    Creative Suite is always nice to have

    I know some licenses have provision for copies to be used off-site - I'm looking at a site license to purchase soon whcih would give me 500 on site and 50 offsite for staff (and possibly select 6th formers).

    You could always ask them for a 23" screen or 2 as they would be easier on the eyes than a 17" one
