Re: MS Office versions - 2016 especially


[re: zyborg47] [link to this post]
 
You are paying for the right to download software updates or new versions of the software while you continue to pay the subscription. You can carry on using the version you have and gain access to the free updates/fixes after stopping any subscription.

The default is the Cloud one drive, but there is a save to computer tick box in the option/save screen to point back to the physical computer.

I see no difference to this over any of the other software buy models where I want to get upgrades by paying for it.

assuming we are talking about Office 365 that isn't correct https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-office-f...
What happens when my subscription ends? How can I continue to work with my documents?
As the expiration date approaches, you will receive notifications in the Office applications and via email, alerting you to the upcoming expiration. If you choose to let your subscription expire, the Office software applications enter read-only mode, which means that you can view or print documents, but you canít create new documents or edit existing documents.
To return to full Office functionality, you can purchase a new version of Office by visiting www.office365.com or any participating retailer. You could also return to full functionality using an older version of Office, or you can use Office Online for free for basic editing.

That's all well and good if you regularly upgrade. For those of us that find a bit of software that works we just want to keep it forever and a day without a regular payment.

If you can carry on using the product if you stop paying then that is not so bad, I presume you have to pay for a fixed amount of time to get that option.

Adobe seems to disable the software if you stop paying.

Oldjim has made the point that Office 365 enters read-only mode if you stop paying.

Just got Office 2003 Pro off eBay for £15 for my new Win 10 PC to replace my Office '97 Pro + Outlook Express on XP. It works fine and registered straightaway. All the better for not having ribbons smile.
