Good points. I'm pretty sure you're right about the upgrade pricing. Then again, the upgrade price to go from Office 2004 to Office 2008 is more than the cost of the home/student edition of Office 2008. If you don't need the extras in the full version (Microsoft Server Exchange Support and Automator Actions for Workflows in Microsoft Office), you may come out ahead by paying full price for the home/student edition of both the current version of Office and the next.

As for the font license, I agree completely. Anyone planning to use the fonts commercially should fully understand the license agreement. As we've discovered in other threads, that isn't always easy.
