    I also worry about public libraries want to use windows 10, they may switch to apple. Reason, they couldn't afford a subscription model even for just for the staff. The library get its fund from local taxes or donated money. No one want taxes to go up.
    And your point is what exactly? You should pay for the library? Microsoft should pay for the library? Everyone should pay for the library? The library should pay for itself as if by magic? Microsoft should give free licenses if they want to?

    With the tight budges most public libraries have I really doubt they will switch to any Apple product., Most of the people that use them are more familiar with Windows to begin with.

    I guess your public libraries are funded differently in France.

    We have three types (I am not counting school & colleges)
    State taxes funded, that usually the state library
    County taxes funded.
    Membership fee and Donations.

    And what makes you think that they can afford to move to Apple products?? And what about the transition for members to learn how to use OSx?? Windows is in libraries to stay.

    Why are people so dead set against Office 365? I don't have it (my different machines have Office 2007, 2010 & 2013) but I've looked at the Office 365 subscription model and it looks like a pretty good deal to me: For $9.99/month you get licenses for 5 PCs, 5 tablets and 5 phones (AND not or), 1TB of online storage for each of 5 users and 60 Skype minutes for each of 5 users. You can also pay $6.99/month for 1 PC, 1 Tablet and 1 phone, 1TB of online storage and 60 Skype minutes.

    With the subscription, you'll automatically get upgraded from Office 2013 to Office 2016 when it's available. If I didn't already have Office installed on my personal machines I would go for Office 365.

    Where is the good deal. I am using Office 2007 since 2007 and paid $129 at the time. With $7 per month I would have already paid $672. That's a funny "Good deal".

    Maybe some individuals can afford $7 per month but would find it difficult to find $129

    What version of Office 2007 do you own?

    Actually I do notice these things (sad ******* I am, but if you are in the queue you have to look at something).

    In my public library where I live in Nice, everything is Lenovo. Screens, keyboards, little desktop PC's to scan my bar-code. The lot.

    Someone got a little backhander I guess. However taking books, CD's, using the internet etc is free as it should be in any civilized society. I don't want to discuss politics though.

    Interestingly the forum software changed a not very rude word I wrote (well I didn't think so, it was my about my relationship with my parents anyway) to ****** and then crashed IE11.

    Give me a break. Are you telling me that there are people that would rather pay $672 over the years than $129 one time. A bank loan would be a lot cheaper.

    I have Home and Student for 3 PCs. I also have the 2010 version for 3 PCs and that cost the same.
