I am not sure why I feel weary of ordering 119 CDs for $1, has anyone tried this yet? I might order it with another order through retrosoftware.

You're fine to order it, I've used RetroSoftware before. Their prices are the best that I've seen. I got a shrinkwrapped copy of NT4 Workstation for $3 shipped

All 110 CDs is $1 or $1 each?

I was interested but I live in Brazil and would be very expensive.

Code:
3) The software must be legally exported to the requested country. Most Microsoft software can only be shipped to the US and Canada.

looks like all for a 1, that would be an interesting set to get, but my question is, how much for shipping to Canada?

Only time will tell. I assume if anything it may contain a few Georgia betas and possibly a Whistler. I have my eye on a Cleo CD in the $1 bin, it says it is for Dos 3.3, if someone on here nabs this before me, please upload it.

Hehe, I was just looking at what they have and found Microsoft Profit - reminds me of that "Microsoft World Domination" in that picture that you often see around! They have some really obscure stuff in the $1 section, I'd never even heard of Profit before. Someone should buy their Word 1.1 - so retro with that Windows 2.x-style box and 5.25" disks!

I would sure be interested in MS Word for Win 1.1, MS Profit 1.0 and Novell Personal NetWare. Sounds interesting :P .

Hehe, you got the Profit one! :P Don't worry about me, I'm in the UK so wouldn't have been able to claim them ;)

Dang! I ordered MS Profit but not this!
If anyone orders again, I would love it if you shared it with us to accompany MS Profit.
EDIT: I talked with some M$ Buffs, these copies of Microsoft Profit are the holy grail of early Microsoft software. If this comes shrinkwrapped, this one might not be shared as I risk losing 1/3 of its value by removing it.
