The academic version is the same as the regular product; the EULA is
different. It is meant for teachers and educational institutions. In
addition some vendors deal in software that has a special price for students
and teachers. You have to read the EULA to see if you qualify to buy it
legally, though I have heard of vendors who will sell to anyone.
As far as prices go, it is my experience that buying directly from MS is not
the cheapest. I'll not name companies but many of the office products
supply stores buy in such great volumes that they usually have competitive
prices. You have to shop around. john
