One more reason to appreciate Softmaker!

According to Woody's Office Watch MS has changed the licence terms for MS Office. I quote from that Newsletter's excerpt of the new licence terms: 'The direct evidence is there in the Software Licence Agreement (the SLA is the newer name of the EULA).

Largest formula you ever wrote?
