Not that I truly care since I already own it, but check this out from www.lifehacker.com:
"Finding that Microsoft had violated a patent on Custom XML usage owned by i4i of Toronto, a Texas judge ordered Microsoft to stop selling any Word products within 60 days that use XML coding in any wayâ��which is pretty much all of them at the moment. Microsoft plans to appeal the injunction and $290 million in damages, and likely won't lose the ability to sell its flagship product. Still, it's not exactly great timing for a day when Microsoft planned to announce Office availability on Nokia phones. Update: The All About Microsoft blog explains in more detail the Custom XML issue at the heart of the court decision."
Evidently, someone at Microsoft forgot to dot their I's and cross their T's! LUV it!
Woot FREE WORD!!! I can stop using Open Office for my article creation
This makes me smile I use Microsoft Office on my mac, but I hate it because it is slow and disfunctional.
I don't have a problem with that since I still use Word 2000. It is great and I don't have to pay for a new upgrade.
Word is just a word processor, who cares. You type something and it appears. Open Office works just as good and I'll stick to using it because its free and effective.
