  • Did you not read the Office 2000 page?
    "Office 2000 Pro was removed from here a while back due to a DMCA."

    As a matter of fact I did. Now that you mention it I went back to have another look though. I cannot believe I actually missed that.
  • This is rather interesting considering the fact that the MSDN version of Office 2000 Premium is freely available. Whether this is legal or not I don't know (and for potential legal purposes I won't say where), but it is hosted on a reputable and well-known (non-warez) website. From the date of the upload it has been available since 2015, long enough for Microsoft to file a DMCA.
  • Yup. On that same "non-warez" site, there have been several uploads of various MSDN ISOs of Windows XP SP3, etx - all gone.

    This is not the "MSDN collection" - its others who have made individual uploads.

    It just so happened that today I was sorting and one of the links I had to that site - clicked on it - they said:

    "Item not available
    The item is not available due to issues with the item's content."

    The terms "arbitrary and capricious" come to mind.

    Also what comes to mind is "This site has been shut down due to DMCA violations" and we all surely don't want to see that.

    See why we hate you Microsoft?! dumbazzes
  • Well? Have you received your eBay purchase yet?

    Some time ago - a year or so, I got fed up with the run around on the other snarky site & ordered Office 2K Premium.

    The 4-disc set on archive.org is Retail, SR-1, MSDN. The Box edition I got turns out to be Retail, SR-0. There are a whole bevy of others, including LVP, NFR, etc. Even sticking with English, Microsoft had different ISOs for the North American vs EU English editions.

    But I digress.

    LEGEND
    ======

    WI=WinImage
    UI=UltraIso
    PI=PowerIso
    BW=BlindWrite
    AL=Alcohol

    NO_VF=No Volume Filter
    EN_VF=Enable Volume Filter

    Explanation for the "LEGEND" part: I tried out a total of something like a dozen of the most familiar ISO tools, in an attempt to figure out what if any differences would occur in imaging what I consider a standard example of Microsoft production silvers. Those 5 I've settled on for current & future work. Nero /does/ work, but its so bloated it makes me gag just firing it up.

    It turns out, you cannot screw up making a straight-forward ISO using WinImage.

    This was after I questioned the absolutism the operator of that site has in demanding that only a particular free version of some software be used (I forget now already, I think it was Alcohol). In any case, it turns out that yes, plain old everyday tools like UltraISO and WinImage with turn out hash-matching ISOs all day long. Hash-matching, meaning they match what MSDN shipped out, and for that matter, every other Microsoft silver I have - and I have quite a few.

    If I ever get off my lazy ass, I'll upload these to archive.org.

    Hopefully, you may choose to do the same.

    Just saw this.. Yeah, torrented these. Also they have been uploaded to archive.org

  • In fact, saw them on archive.org- which prompted me to comment here. I'd forgotten all about it. Anyway, these are the real deal.

  • Now have several sets of various editions uploaded. All are made from physical media I have purchased. https://archive.org/details/@der_appleseed
  • Running Series, Version 2000: Access, Excel, FrontPage, IE 5.0, Office Premium, Office Pro, Office SBE, Outlook, PowerPoint, Word [English]

    Office 2000 Step by Step Interactive, Office 97 Step By Step Interactive [English]

    ...and more Interactive series for Access, Frontpage, Excel, Word.

    Also, Office 2000 Proofing Tools. I've already uploaded one, do not know yet if the SELECT will be newer/older.

    In addition, same poster has recently uploaded non English versions of Office 2000, Windows 2000.

    These are almost all from Microsoft SELECT CD pressings. The imaging of these CDs is meticulous, be sure to post a positive review.

    Below is link to poster's collection. It will not be hard to find.
