    Microsoft Office Xp 2000 like all MicroSoft programs is copyrighted and cannot be freely passed around. If you need a copy of this program I suggest you buy it. The program should be able to be purchased cheaply at www.ebay.com or by checking your local computer flea markets.

    Since college students don't have extra money to pay for MS Office, I do not see them affording any court costs & fines for illegally using pirated copies of Office either, so they need something that is free.
    You don't have to rely on stealing MS products to accomplish your tasks, with alittle searching on the net you usually always can find a replacement app which is equal, and many times even better than what is advertised. Don't fall into the "its' got to be Microsoft Office" - to do a simple word document.

Sophisticated and flexible, OpenOffice.org also works transparently with a variety of file formats, including those of Microsoft Office.

      KOffice is an integrated office suite for the KDE (K Desktop Environment) consisting of several applications like a word processor and a spread sheet. Based on the KParts component model KOffice offers a lot of interoperability between all its components. For example, you can embed every KOffice component into another component (for example a KSpread table into your KWord document.)

    But, if you feel that Free Products are not as good as paid-for apps, then here are a couple Retail Office apps which are much cheaper than MS Office
