Decoded: Microsoft's Puzzling Office 365 Roll-out
Posted 27 February 2013 - 06:29 AM
No, I'm not a MSFT troll. I share the skepticism (and sometimes antagonism) toward Microsoft because of their serious gaffes in customer relationship, poor mobile-device track record, and developer support. But Office 365 in its current state tells me there's at least one product group in Redmond who know what the real world is all about.

Of course then, you wouldn't use SkyDrive for anything. What about other info you put on other company servers? Do you have a bank account? (etc. ...)

It works for us. Sounds like you want to plop down the extra up-front bucks for the DVD version. Glad that works for you.

I am pulled toward Office365 for a few reasons:
-MS years of experience in the Office suite. It's just universally used by most people. Spare me the bullet points on openoffice or googledocs... Most people use MS Word
-MS finally did the simplicity thing right with regards to the seamless integration and self-administration
- The cloud component (for a small business like the one I mentioned) is a godsend send cost-saver
I set up Office365 last month and for the administration costs alone it's worth the price.
