    I will probably give it a spin this week as I am visiting a customer and have not cracked the Office license issue yet.

    If you are just buying a license key and a software download on teh interwebs how do they know if you are in Europe or not?
    If you're pirating Microsoft software they've already got your number anyway Looper.

    Sorry you are right, there is no Office 2018, only 16 and 19. But I looked for it already in 2018, that's what stuck in my mind.

    I did get an old 2016 for my new laptop because that is what I have on the other computers already.

    Well I have now availed myself of one of these extremely well dodgy lifetime eBay office licenses for 5 devices for the sum of 8 aussie dollars.

    Office 2016 installed and activated and is working OK with no nag screens.

    The installation process involved logging in to the MS website with some shonky email address that was surreptitiously emailed to me and was not mine.

    If the po-po comes a knockin I will just tell them that PlanB told me to do it.

    Honest guv!

    2016 old? Work still uses 2010, which was buggy as hell so I still use 2007 version.

    They know when you register your key from your IP-address. You can try to hide it but they will probably recognize the IP from the provider.

    I suspect MS knows exactly where you are.

    I am glad I got that MS suite working.

    Been hitting it hard all week with spreadsheets reports and prezzos.

    Would have been a nightmare trying to get all that shit done on LibreOffice.
