    Does Microsoft Office have half yearly ISOs like Windows 10?


    There's a new Windows 10 ISO after every 6 months.
    Is there a same case for Microsoft Office?

    Will there be a new Microsoft Office 2019 ISO coming in April 2019 along with Windows 10 April 2019 update?

    Hi there
    Office 2019 is now click2run and unlikely to be delivered via update iso's - you have to update online. This is likely also to be the last version of Office before Ms only offers the subscription version Office/365 . Personally I don't like subscription versions - it's too easy to think a few EUR here on this and a few EUR there on that and before long you are paying out monthly a rediculous amount -- same with SKY/NETFLIX/AMAZON/APPLE TV etc -- there are so many providers now it's getting beyond a joke.

    Obviously businesses think subscription model is the way to make money but there comes a point when consumers will say Enough is Enough !!!!

    There's some good FREE alternatives to Ms office out there now which are almost identical and have no problem processing office doc / presentation / spreadsheet formats.

    Cheers

    Thanks jimbo45!

    I agree there are multiple free alternatives available but in my office everyone uses Revit 2019 and is only able to export data through Microsoft's Excel.
    Sometimes I really wonder if all these large corporations work hand in hand to keep themselves rich.

    I can download an Office 2019 Professional Plus ISO via my My Visual Studio subscription. Release gate is 10/3/2018 unfortunately. And its not updated like Windows is. Windows is updated almost monthly on my My Visual Studio subscription. Windows 10 (consumer edition), version 1803 (Updated March 2019) (x64) - DVD (English) is the latest.
    I also get product codes for Office 365, I've resisted using them though. Kind of a PITA to install and setup that way. It takes a lot longer doing it that way. I have download first on every PC I want to install it on, then install it. Its a lot quicker to mount my ISO and run setup.
