I thought of an Office related question I wanted to ask too, so I may as well just ask here!
I've been running Office 2007 Blue Edition for a couple of years now with no issues. However, my most recent job offers employees a genuine copy of Office 2010 for about £8. This is obviously great value, but one of the conditions is that you must uninstall it if/when you leave the job (which is likely to happen as I'm only on a fixed term contract).
So basically I'm wondering if there is any way for my employer or MS to stop it working remotely should/when I leave?
I purchased Office 2007 via the Home Use Program when I worked for the NHS, never uninstalled it when I left and never had an issue. Now using 2010 from my current employer.
If it is through the Microsoft Home Use Program for installation on your personal PC then I don't think there's any way they could tell you've left your employment. You're purchasing it directly from Microsoft using that programme, not via your employer.
