I would love to buy Office 2010 Professional. But as a one man business it is just far too dear. What do you think about buying the Academic version. I know a school teacher.

You'll be violating Microsoft's EULA by doing that. Not that anyone will really check, but if you get a BSA audit, which is unlikely, you can get into trouble.

No, because the academic edition is not licensed for commercial use. Not to mention that registering in a university costs much, much more than simply paying full retail for Office 2010 Ultimate.

The academic licenses Microsoft provides to students through programs like MSDNAA, DreamSpark and MS student deals are only licensed for personal use to students and, in some cases, faculty. Business/commercial use is strictly verboten.
