My post a few days ago about the future of Microsoft Office drew a lot of email. Here are a few random bits I picked up along the way:
- A lot of people really hate subscription software.
- Office 2011 has some Add-in support that Office365 still doesn’t support, like Mathtype
- I heard from an anonymous tipster that claims to be at Microsoft. The tipster said that: 1) Microsoft is “not going anywhere” on the Mac and we can expect Office365 into the future; 2) The subscription model solved their software piracy problem, nearly overnight, and is not going away. I always am hesitant to share anonymous information on this site but this one felt credible and makes sense.
