    I think the bit about Office apps has appeared since the original one, although I don't know if it is in the most recent changes.
    1.1 Agreement. The Agreement governs your use of the Program Services and consists of the notices and warnings above, these terms, terms incorporated by reference, and the Privacy Statements ( Privacy Statement - Windows Insider Program and for Office apps included with the software see )
    ... which leads to the question of whether there may be Office apps within the Windows 10 Preview? Or a separate Office Preview within the Insider program?
    They did supply the link for you to know what that meant

    OneDrive, OneNote
    I'm not so sure - the OneDrive in Office 365 is the (terrible and flaky) "OneDrive for Business" which is thankfully nothing to do with the personal OneDrive in Windows 10. Likewise the OneNote desktop product isn't in Windows 10 by default (although there is a free to download version of Office 2013 so presumably you can add it)

    I'm still hopeful that the fact they've added this wording means there will be an Office preview within the Insider program

    Hi there.

    I think any sensible large office would arrange for its own "cloud" or collaboration software. Relying on 3rd parties for mission critical stuff doesn't seem to me to make good business sense even if it is cheaper. The cheapest solutions are generally not the most robust and we've seen in recent months what happens when you always go for the cheapest solutions --look at the Banks recently with severe outages - customers not being able to get at THEIR OWN MONEY for days -- and if you happened to be stuck in a foreign hotel trying to pay your bill you wouldn't be very pleased if the Bank simply said - we'll have it fixed in a few days while giving you no other options of how to pay your bill !!!!.
