re: MS Office 2013 Upgrade: 4 Points to Consider
Nice Post ! MS Office 2013 has useful features but main problem appears when we upgrade the MS Office the whole document become inaccessible or compatibility mode. The Office 365 is web bases program which is helpful to access whole documents anywhere on the web. No matter of the office version. When we upgrade the complete program the whole files ms word, powerpoint and excel files become unusable so, here we provide the easy to use and fully functional program to upgrade all ms office. May it work in this situation fruitfully: -  http://www.office-upgrade.edbtopst.org/

If you're going to upgrade, you might as well do it for really cheap. http://www.microsofthup.com/hu... This is Microsofts HUP program. It gets you the Office product for only $10 (PC or Mac, your choice)

The Office 365 license's limit of 5 computers is for both PC and Macs. I can't imagine they would be delivering a sub-standard version on the Mac. Of course, I haven't tried installing it on a Mac. Has anybody tried?

I don't want to rent a suite by subscription. I want to buy it and use it as long as I want.
$139.99 for Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013, the base standalone suite, which has no Outlook, but I need a good mail client. Means, I would have to buy Home and Business for $220. But I have a desktop PC plus a notebook and only get one license. Means I would have to buy two suites for $440. And these are tied to the computer they're installed on. Change of computer means: buy another new suite.

No, thanks a lot, Microsoft. I was interested to buy Office 2013, but I changed my mind because of your cheeky price policy.

Since two weeks I use SoftMaker Office Professional, an office suite made in Germany. Just $99 for three licenses, no matter if private or commercial use, including eM Client 5 Professional. I can use all my old Microsoft files perfectly, there`s no violation of formats, it works absolutely seamless. It has all features I need and find it better to use and faster than Microsoft Office. Tested LibreOffice before, but it smashed to much formats. After all I'm happy with SoftMaker and don't miss Microsoft a tiny bit.

Don't want a cloud, don't want "Social Media" integration, sure don't want to pay every year just to upgrade everytime they decide I need to, but even more sure I don't want to be like those poor Google Docs people that get feature changes every couple of weeks whether they like it or not.

Sheesh!!!!!!!!

Will the GUI suck as much as 2010?

yeah, whenever MS decides to update it. And, it's still a notch or so below it's WinOS version.

I'm sure not feeling the love based on those prices ... no major features either! Stick with what I have.

Subscriptions work for games. Not for productivity software suites like Office. Especially proprietary software that only runs on one operating system. Microsoft is delusional.
