As a computer science student, I've become accustomed to having free access to some Microsoft software through a number of programs like MSDNAA and Dreamspark. However, I have not found any such program offering a free or cheaper version of Microsoft Office, at least for my University. Is there something I'm missing or do I have to purchase the Home and Student Edition at 150$? Microsoft Word would be enough, but Excel would be nice.
I know about OpenOffice.org and I'm using it, but I would like to have some of Office's features. I've tried the free web Office 2010 stuff, but it does not support equations, which I need.
