I have just subscribed Microsoft Office Solo to upgrade Office from Office 2011. Mainly I use Powerpoint and Excel, especially PowerPoint has huge bug for Japanese environment, it can’t copy the object on the document. But after upgrade, more comfortable then previous one since UI is closing to Windows Version and solved the issue.
Unexpectedly monthly fee is bit higher than package license. As software company of view, they will be more profitable. Consumer need to pay forever. This is not only for Office product, also Adobe Creative Suit. On the other hand, Apple is providing some basic application by package license with reasonable fee. These are totally different business model. I’m not sure which is the best for consumer, not for business usage.
