Seems fishy, wonder if they even send you a cd key, or if it is just a codeless copy like something along the lines of MSDN.
(like here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/e...r/ee390822 ) There are pieces of software given to small businesses for essentially free, or a fee/year after they start making over a certain amount. That's how I got my windows 7 keys for free. That link however is just a 60 day trial, though I'm sure it is offered for free with that msdn subscription.
what the heck? lol I think they are reading this thread because right after I posted this they added: and Includes the Easy Use Product License Key!
A quick Google search also reveals another website, dealsucker.com, selling the same product at the same price, but OOS. I've never heard of dealsucker, but the discussions on other sales at 1saleaday.com suggests that 1saleaday.com is a legitimate retailer.

Unless you're a hardcore Office user or specifically need Outlook, OpenOffice is great and free.
My new laptop came with Word/Excel 2010 starter so I'll probably forgo downloading OO unless I need its presentation program. Probably exactly what MS wants - to stop the flow of home users fleeing to OO. Although it won't stop me from recommending OO.
However - good luck to those who bought it. It is a good deal. Hope its a legit deal.
