You can get it from :
and other servers out there as well.... This is just another M$ stunt,
every piece of there software can be found on
third party servers. I've not looked for office updates but im sure
someone is hosting them besides Microsoft.
In our FAQ we need to point out Wine can run applications that are built
for a number of windows
versions. And the user should start with win98 and try different
settings if they run into win version errors.
We should also point that due to WGA we suggest using google to search
for third party
hosting of files there looking for.......... and just boycott these
sons of bitches!.
Anything else that may be of relevance?
