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.

$0 for students and staff

One may balk at these prices, but college staff and students do not have to pay for them because msft provides an academic license. This is much much cheaper, in fact staff get a 'free' copy as well as the one on their desktop/laptop.

Pernicious, as these prices await outside of college. Not to mention the academic failure in the lack of awareness (and ability) when it comes to considering or using alternatives.
