Thanks Steven. Do I get these licenses directly through Microsoft? If I
have to invest money I'd hate for it to not be official. I've probably used
some portion of the Microsoft Office Suite everyday for who knows how long.
10+ years. Setting a goal for a MS Office student version/license seems
like a very reachable goal.

I've used Visio in the past during some classes that were teaching me UML.
That was in the range of 2005 to 2007 when I was studying computer science.
I've been on an extended vacation away from college. Is UML something that
is widely used these days?
