Based on customer feedback we have changed the Office 2013 retail license agreement to allow customers to transfer the software from one computer to another. This means customers can transfer Office 2013 to a different computer if their device fails or they get a new one. Previously, customers could only transfer their Office 2013 software to a new device if their PC failed under warranty.
Boy are moves like this just silly. What sort of experiment was microsoft trying to run by tieing an Office install to a single computer forever. Even apps off Apples App Store allow moving to any device and I mention the App Store because it's my least favorite place to ever pay for software. In the end all this did was hurt the companies name for no reason. And they want us to think no used games on the new Xbox will be allowed? If this didn't already change their minds about that then surely it will change a couple of weeks after the system is released and be far more embarassing. Hope this teaches any other company who tries to run a similar experiment...
Pff, that's nice and all, but the office 365 suite is bullshit. Free 30 day trial followed by charging you if you don't cancel in time. Sounds like the normal take your first months payment and run scheme.
No, that's a normal way of doing business. Plenty of extremely reputable companies offer it. The idea that MS plans to cancel the service one night is ridiculous.
Paying hundreds of dollars for an Office suite, or accepting untenable terms from a cloud provider... Thankfully there's LibreOffice and Google Docs for people that aren't batshit crazy.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
