It depends what version it is, some times you can get it from the registery, other times the product ID which the reigstery shows is an encrypted version of the CD Key and it is very hard to retrieve this.

At work, all of us were forced to convert from the Microsoft Office suite to OpenOffice.

An absolute nightmare i tell you.

No, heh.

Because it's a nightmare getting used to OpenOffice.
Presentations which used to take me 15minutes to do, took me 2-3hours.
Because many existing PowerPoint presentations cannot be converted to OpenOffice Impress presentations.
Because OO has horrible templates and animations for presentations.
Because OO has horrible compability with Microsoft Outlook when creating/editing/replying to emails.

etc.

I'm referring to MS Word, not MS Works. Two different products.

One of the system diagnostic applications used to throw out the XP and Office serials that are installed. I think it might have been SiS Sandra.
