Re: Trial version of Mathematica 8 restrictions and a

It's Mathematica 8, plain and simple!  As to functionality, there's no 
essential difference!

(Except, as with the Student Edition, you might see something special on 
headers or footers of printed pages -- if that's even still the case 
with the Student Edition.)

As to moving from the trial version to a regular licensed version from 
your University, presumably there's a site license administrator at your 
institution who can answer that question. Of, if not, phone or e-mail 
Wolfram Research.
