Microsoft is continuing its campaign to drive Office users onto a subscription plan by killing off its discounted Home Use program.
The program covers individuals whose employer already has an Office subscription and allowed them to download standalone software on a separate home machine for a greatly reduced price of just $15. But no more.
As for the Home 365 being "incompatible" my resolution to that has always been: "Send it in RTF, we don't do doc or docx." There is a DIFFERENT reason for doing that in that malicious macros can't be easily passed and RTF is cross platform everywhere. OR send TXT!
Fine for home use, but that won't work when dealing with corporate clients.
older versions of MS Office will no longer be able to read files created by Office 365Least Common Denominator applies. Set the save as [default format] to Office 95/2003 and ALMOST ALL of the fancy formatting in common use is preserved.
