Lets see, I spent a grand total of $240 for my Office 97, Visual Studios.net(6 cds), Home XP, XP Pro, and Office XP. The price is so high because I bought the Home XP from a retail store(I know stupid me). All legit cds. I also have a couple of linux distros that I paid for along with all the books that were bought.
And by the way, I have a copy of Suse that I got for free.
