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.

Can't you buy the OEM version with new hardware?

Maybe not?

Personally I don't have a need for Office and wouldn't spend lots for it.

I assume the open-source programs work fine for what I could want to do with them (don't know about Access equivalents) and that the issue for all of them except LibreOffice is lack of file compatibility but _I_ don't have need for that but if one do that's an issue.

Silly that we should be depending on a proprietary format for our documents and that people would demand to have them in Microsoft format. At least as long as we're not talking pixel or print perfect layout of the content.

Then maybe it's harder with a common format, but it should still be doable?

This was rather expensive:

Oh, it was 2013 revealed. Guess that's why I'm not seeing it there yet.

Home and business got Access? So you don't need Professional?

But maybe that was changed in TFA.
