In one of Microsoft's usual confusing messages (it knows, but makes it particularly obtuse), it seems it's to cut some of the services a standalone Office user may use, such as Skype and OneDrive, unless you choose subscribe to Office 365. It's not happening until 2020, but I can imagine it being a frustrating move. Clearly, Microsoft sees its move the subscription models the way forward for any Office user, if it can get people to switch over.

Yet another reason to move to open source options.
