Eh, vitriol has a long half-life.  Anyway, about content...

"Issue free copies of the software to students with their course" -- I
might suggest "Provide" rather than "Issue", because for some reason I read
that as "Issue-free" on the first pass.

"book, with Writer all are simple tasks" -- suggest "book are all simple
tasks with Writer".

"straight forward" -> "straightforward"

"Exploit decorative treasures, such as special shapes such as banners,
stars and captions, from the Gallery" -> "Exploit decorative treasures,
including special shapes such as banners, stars and captions, from the
Gallery"

"Create 3D objects with A simple click" -> "Create 3D objects with a simple
click"

"Available free form:" -> "Available free from:"

I see your disclaimer box for commercial products.  I honestly don't know
if that obviates the need for TMs here and there.  Anyone else know?
