    If a 20yr old version suits your needs, fine but do not compare oranges and bananas.

    The MS lease deal is good value to keep up to five users on latest version and a lot of cloud space. Hell most cloud services would cost more for 5TB (or even 1TB) without any software included.
    I own a 2000 Acura 3.2TL with 108,000 miles on it and it will still get up to 130MPH , I had no problems Driving it to Arizona is 48 Hours.

    Look I am going to mark my thread as solved but before I go I wanted to say that I was very disappointed with some of the comments that were made about my post which was meant to be a simple query and I am left wondering if some are inferring that I am a stirrer and don't know what I am talking about. Well I admit I might not be as clever as most even not coming close but I think a little more diplomacy would not have gone astray in this instance.

    However I want to thank those who did explain things to me in a positive manner I do appreciate it.

    I just had to read this thread through one more time, especially posts which were direct replies to your posts or commenting them. I didn't find anything that was impolite, rude, criticizing you or something that should "disappoint" you in any possible way. That is, assuming that you do not mean with being disappointed that you did not get replies you were expecting for.

    Talking about my posts, I simply pointed out that post you referred to on Macrium forums was fake news, nothing to be worried for, and that you've got the Office subscription model wrong; although subscribing is dirt cheap and practical with a lot of benefits, there still is and will be an option to simply buy a one time license. Subscription is just an option, not the only option.

    For future reference, could you please PM me instructions for how to reply to your posts without making you disappointed, how you expect to be replied and corrected if wrong?

    Anyway, what would be so bad about subscription model ? Most of us would never be able to own a house/apartment, car or any major appliance if we had to pay everything in one shot without taking on a mortgage or bank loan. For longest time I payed car insurance like that, 12 postdated cheques took care of that. Now with electronic banking it's even easier and budget friendly. Whole world, including largest and richest countries work like that.

    Well I will keep it as short as I can and say that I was just disappointed with such comments as BS, cow excrement not to mention what I took to be inferences by some replies to this post that I was some sort of nit wit stirrer and unnecessary stuff like that.
    I might add that I shall not be posting anything like that again in this or the 7 forum which I have been a member as most will know for many years and I shall just stick to problems that affect myself and my machines.
    I don't pretend to be anything more than semi literate with computers but all the same I don't need to be replied to in that fashion either even though I might have been reading that article in perhaps the wrong way about that topic that or may not have had any substance.

    For what its worth my comments were directed at the person posting in the link you provided. Not at you specifically. My apologies if you thought I was pointing my comments directly at you.

    As were mine.

    @ICIT2LOL, how on earth can you take all this so wrong? After posting this I will unsubscribe, not wanting to continue this discussion anymore. However, I want to make a last effort in explaining this to you.

    You asked if that post on Macrium forums is for real. I answered that question, told my opinion that the post is total garbage, complete BS. The BS reference in my post was clearly not referring to you or the fact that you posted asking if it is real. Instead, it referred to that post in Macrium forums.

    You had right to ask that question, but in all honesty if you do not tolerate other than politically correct replies you should add a note in posts like that informing us fellow members that you expect us only to use language that you have pre-approved. Using an expression like BS is not against forum rules.

    I still can't find any better words to describe that post on Macrium forums than garbage and BS. I am sorry if that makes you disappointed. I am sorry that I hurt your feelings by telling my sincere and honest opinion, answering your question as honestly as I could. What a bad thing to do it was, what a bad person I am! Sorry.

    With that attitude of yours, I really recommend that you make it absolutely clear to us fellow members how you expect us to answer your questions. You could for instance start a thread in Chillout and outline the rules we should follow and obey when replying to you. You could title it simply "When replying to me, please follow these rules".

    Personally I will promise that in the future I will not reply to your posts before I've sent a draft of my intended reply to you as a PM to ask your acceptance, and only post it when you have given your OK.

    For Flying Spagetti Monster's sake, think!
