I visited a website offering downloads of OEM Offfice 2003 for $70 each and according to them, it comes with the requisite key. You can (apparently) register the suite, and get the updates like all other, ahem legitimate owners.
The only difference seems to be you don’t get Microsoft’s tech support.
Could it be that Microsoft tacitly endorses this marketing ploy to generate additional revenues, which they’d lose to black marketeers, anyway?
And that’s my question along with…
Have any of you ever bought things like this? and How did it work out?
