Office 366

Post by hlewton »

If it has been mentioned here I don’t see it. Curious to see what others think of the announcement by MS about Office 366. Seems MS wants $8.00 plus taxes, US dollars, for our Office 365 subscriptions to remain fully functional on Feb. 29, 2020, leap year. I think that is a bit excessive but I use the products EVERYDAY so I don’t see a way around it. Any thoughts about this.

That is the April Fool's page put up by Office Watch. Notice the tell-tale sentence
•Interview with our friends at Office-Watch.com
Microsoft wouldn't write such a thing!

And then there is the giveaway sentence at the bottom of the page
If you haven't already realized, this page isn't made by Microsoft Corporation
