Campus Computing News

By Dr. Maurice Leatherbury, Senior Director of Academic Computing

Microsoft Campus is Completed!!!

It was touch and go there for awhile but we DID finally get the agreement signed and sent off to Microsoft. We have been notified that Microsoft has signed the agreement, so now we're legal to start distributing the products covered under the Campus Agreement on campus. Any of the following products may be installed on a University-owned machine:

  • Office Professional or Standard (Office 97, 2000, or Macintosh)
  • FrontPage (97, 2000, or Macintosh)
  • Windows OS Upgrade (95, 98, or NT Workstation (not Server))
  • Visual Studio Professional
  • BackOffice Client Office License
  • MS Press Office Starts Here

We're working with the UNT Bookstore and HiEd, our vendor, to sell CD's of the products for $7.00 per CD for home distribution and hope to have that in place by the end of September. Note that the cost is per CD, not per product, so Office 2000 will cost a whopping $14 since it's on 2 CD's.

As I said last month, your network manager should be able to answer any further questions you may have about the Campus Agreement and will help you to get the software installed on your office computer(s).
