Re: Nothing like having your work day extended a few more hours because 'The Cloud' is unavailable.
Well that is your choice. Do you want the continually updating Office 365 version of the client or the stationary Office 2019 version of the client? Do you want the extra application that come part of the Office 365 suite, some of which are great, some not so great.
There are some advantages to Office 365, the disadvantages are the costs and ongoing nature at that. However if I wasn't going to use Office 365 I would probably use LibreOffice/Google Apps free instead - like I do at home.
