Only plebs use Office 2019 over Office 365, says Microsoft's weird new ad campaign


From 2013 onwards they've removed a lot of document authoring features from the standalone that are only available via the subscription. Even though I need them to increase my productivity, I'd rather cut off a limb than pay them a subscription - which is essentially protection money.

After mopping up from an upgrade from win 7 to 10, I have decided I am going to live long enough to see microsoft either go kaput or be swallowed up by another company. Their behaviour over the last 5-10 years gives me hope it will be sooner rather than later...
