Nowaday, most of the software programs require user to register online to get their license key for the program to be functional, so how about Home User, they need to register and pay for the license???

I think he wants to find out if Home users pay or not! Of course they do buddy! You think MS and other big vendors would let the home users off the hook for free? :p

How much we need to pay for Window XP office??

Hi. How much you pay per licence per user depends greatly as to the software/vendor and the weather. I suggest calling the vendor and asking them directly for the cost.
They will need to know how many users, company info and a few other bits of information.
As a general rule Home users buy software for exclusive use on one machine and the price is the price paid at point of sale. No other charges apply.

The best (legal) way to get software is to buy an OEM copy of it. Normally you have to buy a peice of hardware to go with it, but still winXP pro for $139 + $8 (floppy) is still a good price. The other way if you are a student, is that some uni's have deals with MS and sell all MS programs for really low prices (like $5, or $15)

Like if you buy 1000 copies of windows xp pro, it's going to be cheaper right since you bought in bulk. But Let's say you want them to be able to access a server right. So you buy Windows .NET server. But then you have to pay (about $10 each) for each computer to have a "Client Access License" which basics says that they can access the server. Even tho it will all work without this peice of paper, to do it legit you have to buy them. And thats just windows, let say you want to use Exchange for mail, you have buy Exchange and then another set of 1000 "Exchange Client Access Licenses"
So it can cost a lot more for a corprate network.
