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.

The last straw was using LibreOffice's Impress for a formal presentation only to find that it had got massively scrambled in being saved, and half the images failed on actually presenting.


If you are not going to use your own computer, you need to have your presentation as pdf. Just in case something goes wrong. Likely, it will.

I have had similar problems using Powerpoint. The last one, I had a 1-hour presentation and I needed to prepare a shorter version. I just hide 90% of the slides and in my computer those slides weren't shown during the presentation rehearsal. But, they were shown during the presentation in front of the audience. I had a very bad time during those 10 minutes. Some kind of incompatibility between powerpoint versions.
