You're never going to love Office, because it's Office—it's the thing you use to make money and do things you actually enjoy. But that doesn't mean it can't be (relatively) painless, affordable, and smart. Starting today, it is.
Office 365 Home Premium is a fancy word for Microsoft's new subscription-based, cloud-hosted way of getting Word, PowerPoint, and Excel (plus corporate stuff, if you want it). Discs are obsolete—this is a very modern Office, and frankly, it's as lovely as word processing and spreadsheets (blech!) can be.
