Um. If you're actually in need of licenses, I can get them for you cheap. I've got a lot of software left in my purchase account.

(If you're just mocking the pricing scheme, that's good too :-) .)

I was mostly just mocking the pricing scheme, but I am planning to buy it.

I use a Mac so I'm buying it to use with Parallels virtualization software.

If I buy a license from you, how does that work? Is it the same software that's in the retail box?

Yes. The only issue is that it's "not for resale", meaning that they don't want me to buy it for either of us to sell at a profit. I'm 99% sure that I can sell it at cost, but I generally just give it as a gift.

Thank you so much for your offer, but I ended up just buying the retail box because I wanted a record of it for tax purposes.

Um. Sorry - have to retract the offer, unless I have a spare copy (and I might). I'm not working for Microsoft any more.
