Thanks for that info. My DH's work is not eligible but I work for a law firm and it was. I'm downloading now. I'd of never known about this so thanks for the hint about googling. My kids always use my work laptop for these programs so now we'll be able to use the home laptop too!I would assume county government employees are eligible as well. Google "Microsoft Office government employee discount" and you should find a link to the info. Basically, you just have to put in your work email address and it will tell you if you qualify. FYI, the gov employee discount is about $70 less than even the student/faculty discount. Apple also offers discounts to gov employees, but I don't know the details.
