,----[ Quote ]
| The company's Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) program will require
| mandatory validation of Office software on Friday, the software
| vendor quietly disclosed on Thursday. After that date, any Office
| Online templates downloaded from within the Office 2007 Microsoft
| Office System applications will require validation of legitimacy.
Among home users, the piracy levels of Office are vast. With Open Source and
free software out there, very few will choose to spend the money on
licences. Wait and watch.
