    I keep seeing these auctions on eBay for information on how to get free Microsoft products. You can see a few of these by searching on 'Office XP Free' on eBay. What's the deal here? Are these legit? There's gotta be a catch. Because I'd really like to get "Free software can be obtained DIRECTLY from Microsoft with NO shipping costs, NO handling costs, or any hidden charges of any kind!"

    Can't say for sure, but you know the old saying : "You get what you pay for".

    What would you pay for a copy of Office 95? That's probably the hitch. Or they are the betas with an expiry date that has since passed, but if it is free, what are you waiting for?
    And by all means, let us know what you got!
