ZDNet’s Asia arm reports that unauthorized copies of Microsoft Office XP are selling in the
Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur for about U.S. $2.60.

“In an interview today, a Kuala Lumpur-based IT consultant, who requested anonymity, said that
he paid RM10 for a single Office XP Professional CD, which comes with Word 2002, Excel
2002, PowerPoint 2002, Outlook 2002 and FrontPage 2002 for Web authoring.”
