No matter what the revision level of a software product, you will purchase it initially as an original program. This initial purchase of software does not need to be at retail prices. Microsoft Word may cost its official $450.00 somewhere, but almost no one sells it at that price. We've been purchasing that product for sometime now, usually for about $200 by mail order. PC Connection (800–243–8088), for example, sells Word 5.0 for $209. Similar discounts are available in many places. Even local retail stores typically knock a large percentage off the official price.
