Default actually its legit..........

the compnay that sells the software has been contracted by microsoft to do just that. their first offer was very widely advertised. if they were selling fake software it would have definitely come to microsoft's attention. right now they are only selling the office suite

on oct 24 comes the vista i mentioned. after installing the software i updated it immediately with microsoft. and it went flawlessly.

the object of the entire thing ( i think )was to get young people ( students) using microsoft software at a price they could hardly resist. for that reason the deal is only available only to those who have an email at some sort of school.

the company doing this is called digital river and they have set up market places with microsoft selling more than office.

cheers
