And punters who buy Office 97 between January 1 and the official Office 2000 release date will be offered a free upgrade to Office 2000. Office 2000 Professional will be priced at $309 for users upgrading from previous editions of Office, $349 for those upgrading from competing products and $499 for new users. Office 2000 Standard and Small Business follow the same pattern, at $209, $249 and $499 for new users.
