Re: Microsoft does it again

Might it be that at home program, similar to what FS talked about with JFW itself, where employees of some companies can get Office for such a reduced price? If so, it it probably only available to employees of specific companies.

That wasn't what I got from the context of the e-mail. You may be right. but it looked like the notice I got when I upgraded in June, 2014. Here's the exact language:

We teamed up with your organization so you can purchase your own copy of the latest Office Professional Plus 2016 or Office Home & Business 2016 for Mac to use at home.

Upgrade to one of the versions of
Office 2016 now.

I think that is for a monthly subscription to Office 365. It has been offered for $9.99 a month for a couple of years. It entitles you to free updates as long as you have the subscription.

Those of you in academia, business, or government be on the lookout. As most probably know, the new Office is in circulation, and Microsoft is offering it for $9.95; that's even cheaper than last time. Look for a notice in your mailbox. I don't know of any super new feature(s), but that's pocket change for anyone who has a strong urge to upgrade.
