BT bundles MS Office with Linux laptop

Filed under

This week's award for the Most Astutely Selected Software Bundle goes to BT after the teleco tried to hook potential purchasers of Asus' Linux-running Eee PC 900 by offering to ship it with a copy of Microsoft Office.

BT is offering the 20GB 900 for £335.99, but if anyone out there is willing to buy it for £422.34, the telco will include a copy of Office Home and Student in the box.

BT hasn't got any Eee PC 900s to sell at the moment - they're due in 1-2 weeks, the site says - so there's time for the telco to replace the bundle offer with one more relevant - not to say more compatible - with the operating system the little laptop actually comes with.

iWork, perhaps?
