OneDrive, Sway and Skype are either included in O365 or free.
Microsoft is hard nosed about leakers, pirates and MS impersonators too! If one is caught leaking information, pirating or pretending to be an employee, there's no second chance. They'll be out of the program for good and will never get back in.
There was a beta tester who had a bright future, but he conned a Microsoft employee into setting up an email account; an @Microsoft account! Then he started claiming to be a Microsoft employee. When our PM (Program Manager) got wind of it, he was gone in a flash! There was another one who was pirating Microsoft products; needless to say he was turned in and gone forever too.
So, the rules are stringent, but not hard to follow as long as you remain honest.
Well if the software they develop would be included in an "Insideresque" type of presentation I can see that as realistic.
Right now, Windows is more or less free to genuine Windows 7 & 8 users, so if they gave away O365 too, my thoughts are that it would be more than their financial department would be able to take.
As a subscriber to both Office Home (sub ended 8/31/15) and ProPlus (sub started around 5/2015), other than the addition of Skype for Business and OneDrive for Business, there's not very much difference, if any.
What I can see happening is that corporations would let their employees subscribe to O365 personal (and maybe reimburse them) and only subscribe to S4B and OD4B; thus, save a ton of money. And Microsoft would be the loser.
Talk about yer greedy users . . .
1. I love to learn new things.
2. I love to use software before it's largely available.
3. I love to be instrumental in growing new products.
4. I love to get a leg up and already be familiar with the product before it's released.
5. Because of #4, I can help my friends and neighbors when they finally get it.
6. There are many more reasons, but I won't bore folks with those.
7. Well, maybe I will . . . This group of helpful members is a real incentive to test!
