    I need a product key for Office 2010, and Quickbooks 2012 Pro.

    Anybody have a good (cheap) place to buy legit software?

    It's always cheaper to steal a product than to pay for it, of course.

    Earlier this summer... if you have a myspace email address, it would work!

    The trick is being able to receive incoming email TO your myspace address. I set mine up, and about a week later I noticed it was actually working. I cashed in on it, I got the Mac version of Office 2011 for under $10. My work address should have worked, but I guess we are too small to be recognized by the system. That's why I went the myspace route.

    I also tried that "Libre Office" on my Linux Netbook. It is actually a pretty cool program...the only thing I don't like about it is it wants to by default save files as some crazy ending. It is of course free, so that is really nice.

    Both Open Office and Libre Office want to save files in the "open" format for lack of a better name. I've read from independent sources that this format is more stable than the MS Office format.

    Of course, both open source programs give you the option of saving your work in any of several MS Office formats, too. I've used Open Office for years and couldn't be happier with it. It's very rare that you get a quality program for free. IMHO.
