MS Office versions - 2016 especially


[link to this post]
 
Currently I use Office 2010 and am very comfortable with it. It may be that I'll need to get MS Office for a new PC for elsewhere, it seems that the only versions that can now be purchased are Office 365 and Office 2016.

From what I read it seems that an internet connection is needed for these, either all the time or at least pretty frequently. I need to be able to use them free-standing, i.e. off-line.

Anyone know whether this is possible?

Would be quite happy with 2010 if I could still buy a copy - a legal one.

No you dont need an internet connection for Office 2016.

As for obtaining Office 2016 - check eBay.

Do you mean Office 2010?

How reliable is Ebay for software? Pirate copies? Virus'd copies?

Maybe I'm overly cynical or over cautious, but...

I have the office 365, which is downloaded to the PC as part of the install process. Once downloaded and installed you can use the software offline, like normal.
