    Office 365 updates for new business users not until Feb 27


    On January 29, as expected, Microsoft began shipping two key components of the "New Office": Its Office 2013 packages and Office 365 Home Premium subscription service.

    But new customers who are waiting on the other refreshed Office 365 plans with all the latest features -- the Small Business, Midsize Business and new Enterprise offerings -- have to wait until February 27 for them to begin rolling out.

    That is possibly going to change.

    This is oddly enticing... even though I could go without having another monthly subscription....

    for Home Premium 100$ a year for 5 PC's? that is on par and cheaper than buying upgrades every few years.

    Also, compare what you get versus Home and Student

    If you're a student: $79 for four years. That is legitimate. Too bad anything I do school-related work on is a Mac. I guess I could always fire up Parallels for when I write a paper...

    Compare Microsoft Office Products & Subscription Plans - Office.com

    Look again.. Office 365, can be installed on 5 systems, gives you the entire suite for 100$ a year
    That is 20$ a system per year.

    Yes, you can install it, yes you can use it while NOT connected to the internet, unless you need to save or get stuff from Skydrive.
    Yes you can save stuff to your HDD.

    That is the best deal on the planet for a full Office Suite.

    Ok, yeah, I missed this part,, sorry,, $79.99 4-year subscription,, for a student, that is awesome.
