    Office 2016 -- Buy Now only links to Office 365 (subscription)


    Hi there

    will office 2016 be available as a stand alone (non subscription) product for non corporate users. If I follow my link to Buy Now from the trial preview it only offers me Office 365 or Office 2013.

    I'm NOT interested in subscription software or Office 2013.

    I suppose then back to Office 2010 !!!!. - I'll see if Office 2016 appears within the next few days --still have 70 days left on the trial preview.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    :)

  2. How to ugrade office 2007

    Upgrading or having Office 2007 installed is not particularly critical. As long as your Office documents are intact, performing a new installation will preserve your files.

    You will need to purchase license for Office 2016 or Office 365.

    Office 2016 is known as the perpetual license, which is like Office 2007, you buy it once and it doesn't get feature updates, but its one time purchase.

    Office 365 is the evergreen version of Office 2016 which gets features and improvements as soon as they become available. A major difference between Office 365 and 2016, 365 is only available as a subscription. Which means you have pay a monthly fee for
    it.

    See:

    Choose Microsoft Office Products

    Office 2016 for Home, Students and Professionals - Microsoft Store

    or

    Buy Microsoft Office 365 Home & Personal subscriptions

  3. Microsoft office

    Which version of Office was it, Office 2010, 2013, 365?

    If it came with the computer, it would likely be a trial version. If it was Office 365, it would only be for 30 days unless you had activated a subscription.

    If you had activated a subscription, you can sign into the Office Portal and reinstall it:

    Download and install or
    reinstall Office 365, Office 2016, or Office ...

    Jimbo, it's early yet and I can't see 2016 on any Microsoft sites, I'd expect it to start showing mid morning US west coast time.

    Jimbo, what is the concern over the subscription version? At $99 a year for 5 installs of the premium version of the suite, plus 1tb of OneDrive space for 5 accounts, really makes Office super cheap. 1 single copy good for 1 pc only of Office 2016 professional is $399. Thats 4 years of office 365 subscriptions, plus you get the time value of money since with the full software you would be out 399 on day 1, but with 365 you only spend $99 in year 1, leaving $300 to do with however you want.

    Unless you only need 1 copy of the most basic version of Office, the 365 sub is a no-brainer. If you require Outlook, thats $229. I'd be on 365 at that point.

    Sadly, I downscaled my MSDN to a version without office. It was a huge cost savings.

    But my Office365 sub has 2016 available today now. Its super cheap.

    Office 2016 requires a Office 365 subscription. All that Microsoft did, was create an offline Cloud Based interface, that uses Office 365 for the real work.

    It is not going to go well with the consumers when they go to install it and find out that they have to pay a monthly membership.

    Yeah, for those that don't want a subscription, I believe the Home and Business version is priced at $229.

  14. I have no interest in Office 365. I should get keys for the full license Pro version on MSDN. Eventually.
