Microsoft Microsoft Office 2013 has received its pricetags. Home and Student - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote - is $140, while Home and Business, which adds Outlook into the mix, is $220. Professional jumps to a whopping $400, but adds Access and Publisher. For $100 per year, you can get the subscription version, which can be installed on up to 5 PCs (both Windows and OS X PCs). In related news, Microsoft still thinks it's 2001.

Ok, so you don't run Windows and don't intend to.

Microsoft do sell Office. Just not to you. They probably do it in the way which generate more profit, which is their goal.

But maybe you and Thom are better at generating profit and running a business than Microsoft? I mean Thom think this strategy belongs in 2001. How much successful business has Thom created? I won't comment on OSnews..

Microsoft likely know not everyone will use all of it. So what? Either you buy it or you don't. You mention all the other programs, if you don't want Office use those instead. Done deal?
