Does it still make sense to buy Microsoft Office?

Cnet: urrently, Office 2010 Home and Student and Office 2010 Home and Business sell for $119.99 and $199.99, respectively. That's for a single-user license. The three-user version of Home and Student costs $149.99, while a two-user Home and Business license will run you $279.99.

I don't understand why prices are so high. The only reason for it is because they sucker business' and other people into "needing" it and have them shell out money. Its stupid, especially when entirely free options compete with it....

Honestly, how hard is it to make the same program with hardly any changes? You have people making video games and related things that take years to code and program, then they sell it for 60 bucks. You can get a license to a game engine for the price of MS Office.....

Honestly if Adobe, Microsoft, and others sold home versions of their products at a reasonable price, then piracy would decrease a ton and sells would go up.

The only real ones I can understand are autodesk products, since 3D is a pain in the arse....

We have LibreOffice, Lotus Symphony, ThinkFree Office, and of course OpenOffice So why to buy a pricey Office?
