    I don't mind the 365 subscription, the 1TB onedrive space each for all the entire family make it really good value for that alone.

    Hi there
    I think you mean "lease" so they can collect money in perpetutity -- the fact that Office 2010 still works for probably 99% of what typical people use Office for shows that decent software can still work for years and years -- is it around 12 years when the beta of Office 2010 came out (they are always release before the actual year .

    Of course if people aren't buying new products or services that's potential revenue lost after a "one time gain" when the initial purchase is made.

    Soak up money every month --that's the name of the game --but guess what --here's one guy who is not buying into that method -- If windows services also goes that way --well there are other optopns available -- FREE such as the infinitely configurable arch linux etc etc.


    cheers

    GM isn't gonna encourage me to keep driving my dilapidated 1972 Vega, it's in their best interest to sell/lease me a new car!

    Hi there
    however that's not the whole point -- might be better for GM but is it ) better for you !!!! .

    However even GM might think -- supplying services probably would make them more money than selling Cars -- did you know that if BMW was a Bank it would be one of the largest banks on the planet -- the finance division makes more money than on selling cars (I must confess though I do love BMW's !!!).

    If I can get nearly 1100 KM (I think around 700 miles ?) on a full tank of diesel on a car that I own outright (no payments etc) why would I go for buying a new one costing me "loadsaMoney" - I can do other things with that money that I'm not using on car payments -- and as for those electric things (apart from where does the energy generation come from and what about manufacture and disposal of batteries) which to me are just expensive "electric Milk floats" -- I'd love to see you in one of those things in the middle of an Icelandic winter where you have the heater running full on and you are at least 3 hrs from town --even if you are well within the alleged "range" of the car.

    Use your money for YOUR best advantage - not some faceless corporation. If the product is fine -then I'll buy it but I'm not going for "perpetual services" --just not me folks !!! Even for electric a lot of us can create our own with geothermal etc although this is probably a decent case for paying for services from the grid. But Computer software --- no thanks --that's why I'm still using an old version of Photoshop (CS6) and the GIMP (the free thing) is just getting better and better with each release.

    However like all these things --if people are happy with the model then do it --some of us though won't bite.

    I'm sure a heavily discounted h29 EUR license for Office 2019 (still working, activated properly etc etc) for some represents better value unless you simply "must have" the latest features.

    Cheers

    I'll stick with Office 2010 which I only use occasionally. My Wife used to work for the NHS and got reduced prices on Microsoft apps.
    She bought Office Pro Plus 2010 for £9.75.
    In hindsight I should have asked her to buy several Win 10 keys just before she retired

    Your licence is only legally valid while you continue to work for the employer for which MS provided the offer - however I doubt anyone will catch you.
