Couldn’t help but rant about this “offer” for Windows Vista and Office Ultimate edition(s) I saw on Amazon:

Vista and Office Ultimate Bundle Deal

I think £777.46 is expensive enough – but it illustrates quite how much (£969.98) you could Spend on just Windows and Office with Microsoft! I was amazed so thought I’d share!

Just think of the PC / laptop you could buy with that cash – with which you could buy the OEM versions of the above and save loads (look up Vista OEM on somewhere like Ebuyer.com or Dabs.com). Or if you can do away with Windows altogether – use Ubuntu and OpenOffice

I doubted the usability of Open Office until a few months ago – when I installed it on my parents new PC – they said that they haven’t really noticed the difference! They also said “how can they get away with doing this? Its exactly like MS Office!” Looks like MS might be trying to address that with its recent patent rumblings then!
