You Know, Abiword And Open Office Are Free As In Beer As Well As Freedom

M$ has long allowed users to upgrade their WinOS and M$ Office products instead of buying whole new versions.

Today, M$ announced that part of Office is over.  No more upgrade pricing.  So you have to pay full price for the new versions of Office.

Remember when Office 97, if you tried to save a 95 doc in that format, stripped the formatting and made it a .rtf file, forcing people to upgrade?  Whoever said "you get what you pay for" never purchased business licenses.
