    Well, it can be 5 users too. Generally speaking, I think people who buy Office 365 home are probably using a couple of installs, but likely aren't sharing with other people. Granted, they could share and split the cost. Microsoft even has a paper on how to do just that. But I think most people paying the $99 are like me where they have installed it on multiple devices of their own. So, while cost is $100/5 = $20....it's not like I got it for $20 and sold off my other 4 installs for $80..

    If I were Microsoft, I would probably do $39.99 and $99.99.

    Is there any discount for one person? It just looks too expensive when I compare to 5 persons
    If you're a college student you can get a 4 year subscription of Office 365 University for $79 bucks. You'll need to verify your student status. It's good for two PC's and a tablet/smartphone. I just redid my subscription which doesn't expire till 2021.

    You can also get Office 365 for free as a student/teacher, again, with verified credentials, but that bundle doesn't come all the office apps like Outlook, Publisher and Access.

    Anyway just FYI.

    Possible, but I need then to use my faculty mail? It's good for office, but I would like to keep onedrive on my private mail, not faculty.

    It has nothing to do with OneDrive moving, nor going public with your mail. I know this because I'm using it. Home use all the way

    You simply need to supply a .edu email address, or any other school verification documents requested, so they know you are indeed a student or teacher. This simply validates you qualify for the special offering. Once that's done, you can register the product with any email address you want and nothing is tied to your school. Again, I know from personal experience as I'm currently using the product. And NO, should you graduate before the period ends, the product doesn't cancel.
