What components of Office 2007 are you after?
The Home/Student edition of Office 2007 can be owned by anyone using the application in a non-profit making environment (so home, not in an office or business etc).
It's available for around £80 and can be installed on 3 computers.
However you should note that this package does NOT ship with Outlook 2007.
It comes with:

Word 2007
Excel 2007
PowerPoint 2007
OneNote 2007

That is absolutely perfect.

I need a copy for my laptop to take to uni. My dad is a GP and fancies the newer version having just bought a new PC. Neither of us use Outlook.

That should be great.

Cheers

No, the fact that it's garbage does that. It does not have the same functionality as Microsoft Office does.

Documents don't look exactly the same as they do in Office. This alone is the reason why I could never use anything other than Office. I don't want to try doing some collaborative work where the file gets mutilated every time I edit it.

I don't really want to turn this into an Open Office debate, but for most people it's simply not an option. Very few people would have an office suite and not share those files with other people. I personally need compatibility with Office files, which is why I have Office. When people try Open Office and it messes up their formatting, they aren't going to blame Microsoft for that, they're going to uninstall Open Office.

There's nothing wrong with the program by itself (apart from the way it doesn't center the document when you zoom out, but the authors seem to have some anal viewpoint that left aligning it is the way forward), but who uses an office suite and doesn't share their files?

I don't like to use Open office, not becuase it's necessarily crap (although Caged does have an argument against), but becuase MS office is so much better, especially when you have 2007.

No other office suite can match it.
