Microsoft Office and the Big Subscription Bet

February 4th, 2013
Well it's been another wild week here in the Linux blogosphere, what with all the ruckus emanating out of the bordering Redmond territories. Much like what happened last fall when Windows 8 made its fanfare-filled debut, the launch of Office 2013 and 365 last Tuesday left more than a few Linux bloggers with a ringing in the ears that didn't abate for days. "Microsoft Cuts Ribbon on Low-Rent Office" was one of the more straightforward headlines to appear. It wasn't long, however, before the complexity of Microsoft's new productivity scheme became plainly clear.

Microsoft Releases ‘Reinvented’ Cloud-Based Office Suite

January 29th, 2013
Reinvention has become Microsoft's new slogan. On Tuesday, the software giant released its newest reinvention, the updated Office suite for consumers.

The cloud-based Office 365 Home Premium, under a new pricing model of $99.99 for an annual subscription, offers the latest version of the suite's productivity applications -- Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access -- and can be installed on as many as five devices by a licensed household.

In addition to Windows-based PCs, the new release supports Windows tablets and Macs, and integrates with the company's SkyDrive online storage and Skype's Net-based calling. Twenty gigabytes of storage on SkyDrive are available to Office 365 subscribers, as well as 60 free Skype calling minutes to any mobile or landline phone, or to a PC.

'Next Big Step'

CEO Steve Ballmer said in a statement that the launch of the newest incarnation of Office "marks the next big step in Microsoft's transformation to a devices and services business." He added that the new release is "so much more than just another release of Office," because it is Office reinvented "as a consumer cloud service with all the full-featured Office applications people know and love."

For consumers, one of the benefits of the cloud is the delivery of many new features and services for Office to the cloud first, instead of home users having to wait for upgrades.

Alongside the unveiling of Home Premium, the company is releasing Office 365 University for college students and faculty, at $79.99 annually. The company is also launching a new, crowd-sourced Web site, Time to 365 at www.office.com/timeto365, where users and experts can share tips about the suite. The company said some of the tips on the site include ways to use Office applications for planning a child's birthday party or how to organize a grocery list with OneNote...
