  1. Microsoft has revealed launch details about its upcoming build of Office for Mac. Two editions of the updated productivity suite will hit stores in 13 languages come October. Home and Student will cost $119 for a single license or $149 for a family pack that supports three installations on different machines, while Home and Business will run $199 for one copy or $279 for two. That's between 20% and 50% less than Office 2008's $149.95 and $399.95 price tags.

    I thought microsoft wasn't allowed to sell that version of office due to an injunction.

    While there is an injunction against Microsoft to selling Office (Word, specifically), it doesn't apply to Office 2010.

    I don't know the details, but it had something to do with XML editing and the way in which Word 2007 does it. 2010 has been designed to omit this feature, to purposefully circumnavigate the injunction.

    Sounds frivolous to me, but a ruling is a ruling.
