Hi

Is the website http://www.theteachernet.co.uk attempting to deliberately rip off teachers by
charging £229+vat for Microsoft Office? I think so - given it's an education-oriented website and if
it was any good surely it would care to mention the fact that you buy student/teacher editions of
all Microsoft's popular software?

Isn't Teachernet the government-sponsored one?

If you don't like it, buy it elsewhere.

Or download Star Office for a sum total of zero...as in free and without payment...unless you think
poor old Bill Gates is hard up for cash.
