Note that the discount only applies to the Professional Version, which
you really only need if you're setting up for a large(-ish) scale
deployment across your institution.

For individuals, we'd only need the standard version ourselves, and that
gets no discount.  The Professional version is only cheaper after 100

That said, their product does work nicely.  It even installs Deathtrap
Dungeon, though the Direct3D doesn't work (but I haven't tried
installing a newer version of DirectX) so you have to use 256 colours
with software 3D to play the game :)

It also runs the ATO's tax pack, though I couldn't get it to connect and
upload my tax return to the ATO, and the help files didn't work.  But
you can prepare your return with it.
