I wouldn't pay for office software when OpenOffice.org is all you need to do word processing, spreadsheets, database, drawings, flowcharts, slideshows... everything microsoft office does, except it's *free*... and it can read any files made with the microsoft products. I'd use the money I saved on that software to upgrade that CPU.
