Difference between editions?

I bought the reduced price Microsoft Office Professional Acedemic 2010. Whats the difference between it and Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010?

Just curious, as I am very happy with what I got so far!

thank you to both of you! However, what about licensing? How many computer can I install it on? I seem to only be able to find this info about Home and Student, not mine.

And my Academic Version seems to be better than the more expensive student/home version. Interesting....

Hi Hondajt again,

Two more links below for you to read.

The Home & Student edition is the only one that allows for installation on up to three home PCs.

^^Darn, so only 1 PC? That's a shame. I really thought it was three. Maybe that's why it's not more expensive then...
