      Have you seen the effing price difference between the UK and the US?
      £229 vs $229 !!!

      Does there actually exist a product that costs more money over there than it does over here?

      No, but then again more work goes into making localizations for another dialect of the English language. (Haha, probably not related at all, they just like making the numbers the same).

      By the way, I bought it yesterday and I find it really dumb that the installer installed Outlook even if you purchase Home and Student, which doesn't include support for Outlook. Overall, I like the style and appearance of the applications much better than 2011.

      Now that is VERY interesting. Tell you why.
      I bought Office 2011 ages ago and I paid for the version without Outlook, but as with you it installed anyway. I did try and run it anyway and of course it didnít work. Somehow during the last year or two it has started working.
      Iíll have to enquire if I can buy the standard version and then add Outlook later.

      That said, both the UK and US versions are English. There is some, granted, but not much localisation involved.
