The last time we bought Adobe Acrobat, the Bookstore only had the
Student and Teacher Edition, which is for home use only. The license
agreement you have to accept in order to install it specifically says
it's for "your privately owned computer" and you have to agree not to
install it on an institution-owned computer. Since we'd bought it for
departmental use, we had to take it back and buy the regular version (I
think Staples was cheapest at that point).
I've forgotten how this thread started, so this may not be relevant to
you, but it turned out to be a problem for us.
