I want to say...
"Did you actually pay money for software?" There is so much for free online. Or, "Did you pay full price?"
If you want free...
Word Processing (MS Office <like> Products) Google Docs or Drive whatever you want to call it. If you need Photoshop like software go to Pixlr. If you want a much larger list of free go here and try not to get lost!
MS OFFICE 360
You also have a live.com account at https://login.microsoftonline.com/. Please do NOT create a new account - just log in with your AD Credentials (aka - computer log on). This is pretty much Microsofts answer to Google Docs. It is Office online. Employees get ONE free download of MS Office to a home computer. (For whatever reason - students get FIVE downloads!)
Sometimes you just wanna BUY it.
Yes. Granite does offer huge discounts on MS Office and Adobe products. You must be an employee or student to get the discounts and you must go through our website to get it.(https://gsdsites.graniteschools.org/Pages/Default.aspx) Go to our intrAnet site to log in and the purchase links are on the bottom right.
