For example, say MS decide to unleash a new office 2017 or 2018 at some point will my 365 update itself to keep itself upto date. It would be a nuisance if I had to uninstall the entire office suite and then re-install the latest 2017/2018 or whatever it will be. If I subscribe every year then I guess I should be entitled to be on whatever version of office MS considers its latest and greatest. I hope that makes sense.

    more on topic - I think no longer getting updates for this isn't going to be necessarily a bad thing. 'Updates' seem to be a constant thorn in the side and potentially break software that was otherwise working well. Between MS, Apple, Adobe and all the other software heavyweights pushing update after update we seem to spend more time updating than actually using our tech. I guess DavidHK has the right attitude. If you've got Office 2007 or 2013 why would you need 2016. As long you can open, edit documents and print then that's all a standard user would need. If support stops then that's one less thing to have to worry about updates.
    You worry too much.
    You are the paying subscriber. If there is a new version, 2017 or 2018 as you alluded to, you will be fully notified and briefed by MS Office. Not to mention this tenforums.com will have the answer for you.
