FYI, and to my disappointment, Front Page is only included as part of Office
2K Premium and Developer, not Office 2K Professional, Small Business or
Standard! I'll bet most licenses fall in the latter three categories.

Good point -- it's also important to note that the majority of
office workers in the U.S. -do- have some version of Office
installed on their computers, which means that it's not an
extra purchase for the company/school if they choose to use
FP2K.  Thus it's effectively "free" even if it's not technically
free software -- since you wanted Word and Excel and Powerpoint
anyway, you didn't have to fork over anything extra for FP2K.
