    I find office 365 great value, 6 users for 79 per year with 1TB cloud storage space each is a bargain.
    I cant afford 79 py. I dont use Office that much for it to be worth while.

    You wanna buy my 6th user account for $20 a year. You get all of the office you can handle and you get 1TB of disk space on One Drive. HAHAHHAHAHA

    TBH I could get away without it myself, for the odd spreadsheet I do these days I could easily use google sheets and I only really use outlook out of habit, however, the girls use so much space for photos etc, it's cheaper for me to get and share an office subscription than buying storage.

    One doesn't need to pay for office, just use the online version and keep documents in either your OneDive to download later, or send them to OneNote.

    To me, Office365 is and always has been a no-brainer.
    For the Cloud-centric..maybe

    Personally I use it for Outlook mainly (even have an Outlook add-on for Thunderbird on Linux)... but horses for courses...

    You do realize that you install the Office suite directly onto your computer with Office365, right? You don't stream it from the cloud to your device.

    Er, if it doesn't come from the cloud where does it come from? An invisible DVD you don't insert?

    No, what I was getting at is that I have talked with some who believed that the application was just streamed to your computer from the cloud and if you didn't have internet access you could not start up Word or Excel as it needed to come from the cloud. Thus, they didn't trust they would always be able to start Word or Excel because their Internet connection was not reliable.


    And I do fall into the cloud-centric arena too.
    1. My email is pretty much gmail these days, which is all in the cloud
    2. My music all comes from Amazon MP3, and is stored in my account in the cloud
    3. Everything at work is moving to AWS, so I spend most of my day configuring our stuff in the cloud.
    4. My pictures sync automatically from my phone to my OneDrive account in the cloud, so I don't even bother backing them up anymore.

    Please dont get me wrong - it is a good deal.

    Unless you already paid for an earlier version of Office.

    Or have no friends.
    Or you got Office 2019 Pro Plus for free.
    I got enough product keys with my Visual Studio subscription to install it on all my personal computers with some left over. =)
