Any pirated software can have added features, such as trojans, spyware or other virus related files

Also, if it's a newer version of Office, you won't be able to install any updates.

You won't need to wear a tin foil hat for the rest of your days. M$ has the ability to liquidize your brain with a secret mind ray it has developed under the code name of Project Vista and if it runs out over your keyboard ... well, it's bad enough getting biscuit crumbs out of it!

In all honesty, there is no real advantage. But, using pirated software is (in most countries) against the law. Therefore, you get peace of mind that you are not potentially going to get yourself into a LOT of trouble with a company you don't want to upset. :whistling:
