How to open the Office 2007 product box

I created a Flickr photoset describing how to open the Microsoft Office 2007
product box. It took me about half an hour and a phone call to our campus
computer store to figure out, so I thought my knowledge and this photoset
would help others save some time.

I never visit links posted as "tinyurl" as there is no indication where they lead. If someone wanted to know how to open the Office/Vista packaging, google is your friend:

Milly, how is the link you posted any safer than the one I posted? Links can
be forged to appear safe, including ones which appear to point to
answers.yahoo.com. The tinyurl link I posted has only 33 characters. The
URL it points to has 65 characters, which is much more likely to get broken
in electronic communications, causing usability problems for the recipient.
Ironically, the link you posted has exactly 65 characters, too, which means
you might have perceived to solve a safety problem but still at the expense
of providing a long URL which can cause problems with usability. I attempted
to solve both at the same time, and the cost is that the reader must trust
tinyurl.com -- something I'm willing to risk. As my original post clearly
indicates, I don't have a question -- I'm providing an answer. My answer
includes photos and interactive notes; your answer does not. I also do not
appreciate your attempt at humor: "After furious head scratching, Frank Farm

Last things first - it is my signature that you object to, no skin off my teeth.

Two, I NEVER trust any tinyurl post - many others do not either. One man's meat is another man's poison. I choose to err on the safer side with a non-anonymous url.

I don't get it. The box was really easy to open - pull the tabbed seal off,
lift by the red tab. If someone needs 8x10 glossy photos with arrows on the
front and paragraphs on the back, are they really ready to use the software?
