Microsoft Office — y'know, Word, Excel, Powerpoint et al. — is the software that work happens on. You've most likely used it before. Well, there are big changes afoot in Microsoft Land: you don't buy the newest version of Microsoft Office, you rent it. That means monthly or yearly fees. Sure, the cloud aspects of Office 365 are pretty cool, but the fact you don't own software you bought is a bummer, especially since that's the way Office has worked for nearly a quarter of a century. Folks with a legal copy on disc will save a lot of money over a year or two instead of paying the $10 per month Microsoft's asking for the same software.
